$£$ Burglary and Phone Theft $£$

It is so frustrating when you hear on the news, “There has been a burglary.” But it is even worse when you, yourself, have been burgled and you don’t know who did it! It is all just a mystery…
It is stated that, “A person is guilty of burglary if he enters any building or part of a building as a trespasser with intent to steal any precious items of the owner’s house or flat.” Afterwards, the police will try to track them down. Then they may even be sent to prison, depending on how bad the crime was.
Many crimes have taken place all over the world, and no-one knows if there is a new gang of robbers about! My advice is to keep on the light when you go out and then burglars will still think you are in the house. Put a lock on the door, and then they can’t get in unless they break it open.
Phone theft is a crime that often happens to people our age. Phone theft is when your phone gets stolen by burglars.
Here are some vital facts about phone theft:
1. Phones are stolen every three minutes.
2. The youngest phone thieves are under 16.
3. Half of people whose phones have been stolen are under 18.
Here is some advice to stop people from getting your phone:
Try to not use your phone in public;
mark your phone to identify your phone;
People like the latest phones to steal so don’t buy a fancy phone!

Very Good advice Harry, what a good idea to give Orchard students (and their parents!) some tips. It's great to have a phone these days to keep in touch with your friends but it does mean you have to be very careful with it.
Well done.
