Ken Hooper who has been burgled five times – but is still waiting for the police to turn up to investigate. See SWNS story SWPOLICE: A pensioner says he has been burgled FIVE times – but the police have failed to turn up to investigate ONCE. Furious Ken Hooper, 78, has had £15,000 worth of equipment stolen following break-ins at home and at work over the last three months. But the semi-retired businessman claims officers have been too busy to respond and blames the Government for cutting front line policing. And a senior cop in his home town of Crediton, Devon, says the cuts have made dealing with all crimes adequately an impossible task.
