Thefts, Burglaries and Events

Posted on 30th January, 2019

Thefts from garages, vehicles and burglaries

There has been a spate of Garage and shed breaks over the last week on this beat. These have occurred overnight. Various items have been stolen from power tools to bicycles.


• Please be vigilant. Lock your garages and sheds.

• Mark any power tools with some identifying marks. Write down serial numbers these help in tracing items if they have been sold in a second hand shop.

• Take down serial numbers from bicycles and photographs. Photographs are very useful if the bike has unique features i.e. mud guards, hand grips. If recently bought please keep receipts.

• Keep ladders locked up in the garage to prevent them being used to break into your house.

• Lighting can be used as a deterrent.

• Dummy CCTV cameras are also useful as a deterrent.


There has also been a few house burglaries as well.

• Please lock your doors and windows.

• Lock gates that lead to the garden.

• Keep bins away from fences.

• Lock up ladders.

• Don’t leave keys in doors or in view of the letterbox, where a pole can be put through to pull the keys through.

• Don’t leave valuable items on view from the window.

• If you are going away cancel newspapers, cover any glass panel that letters may be seen if no one is moving the post whilst you are away

• Leave the radio/light on a timer.

• Ask a neighbour to come in at different times to water plants feed the animals.


Also a few thefts from carsvans. …again

• Again please lock your vehicle.

• If possible remove any power tools from the vehicle.

• Do not leave valuable on display. Remove satnavs as well as the holder and remove leads.

• Don’t leave coins on display.

• Remove bags i.e rucksack and gym bags.

• Mobile phone holders and leads.

• Dash Cams are useful.

• Leave the glove compartment open to show there is nothing hidden in there.

• Don’t leave any documentation on display especially with your address visible.
