Armley Town Street plan

Targeted: Armley Town Street

Some houses in Armley have also been targeted, although police have nopt linked the crimes. One woman, whose home was first targeted on Christmas Eve, was a victim again on January 11.

She posted on Facebook:

“We have been done again but this time, ‘they’ are stealing our garden wall, furniture and a sentimental sculpture (a green marble lady). I kid you not! Brick by brick re: our wall and they’ve not finished.

“I think as a community we should/ need to do something… what that is, I’m not sure. I am so tired/sick of feeling constantly paranoid and threatened by the ever increasing chance of coming home to more invasive and lasting damage.”
