In two of the burglary attempts in Westwood Heath (27th August 2019 and 1st October 2019) the householders' properties had UPVC doors, which are easy for criminals to break into. The following is part of a message that was distributed by Warwickshire Police in light of a burglary in Kenilworth...

"We are appealing to householders to review their home security, particularly door locks that are usually fitted to UPVC type doors. Many of these locks can be snapped within seconds enabling access into property by offenders. “Anti-snap” locks can be used to replace such locks and once fitted make access through doors very difficult. More information can be found here":
