‘One of these occurred on Woburn Close. Incident 000115-10072019 refers.

‘The second occurred on Melton Gardens. Incident 000350-10072019 refers.

‘If you have any information or CCTV footage that may assist us in our ongoing enquires please call us on 101 quoting the above incident number.

‘In light of these incidents we would like to offer the following crime prevention advice:

Always make sure that your shed is locked and secure. Preferably use a close shackled lock (to prevent cropping) or an alarmed padlock. Choose padlocks that state “HARDENED”. Also consider a shed alarm.

• Never leave tools or other items, including ladders, out in the garden that could be used to break into your shed.
• Hinges are often unscrewed or forced – swap some of the screws for coach bolts.
• Ensure items of value such as tools and cycles are clearly marked, preferably with CreMark.
• Register serial numbers of tools and cycles free of charge on https://crowd.in/XVLEZU

ENSURE YOUR INSURANCE ADEQUATELY COVERS YOUR POSSESSIONS.

In an emergency, for example where life is in danger or a crime is in progress please call 999.
