Sub-editors, when you say "In the area" for a paper covering a particularly large area, maybe be a bit more specific.

Is this a thinly veiled advert for some security markers or a genuine story?

You do not say over what period these attempted thefts took place. Last week or last year? And woby-tide is correct too loose an area.
