Spate of break-ins in Thornbury
5:29pm Monday 7th October 2013 in News
POLICE are appealing for information following a spate of break-ins at the Daggs Allotments in Thornbury.
The locks of eight sheds were forced between 12pm on Tuesday, October 1 and midday on Wednesday, October 2. Nothing was stolen except for a gas bottle.
Neighbourhood officers will now be carrying out extra patrols around the allotments and Thornbury High Street.
PCSO Golding said: “The allotment holders don’t keep any power tools in the sheds as there is no electricity at the site.
“I would ask anyone who noticed anything suspicious in the area on Tuesday or Wednesday, or who has any other information which could help our enquiries, to give us a call on 101.”
Police are advising owners to ensure their sheds are sturdy and fitted with Sold Secure quality locks.
Sheds with no electrical supply can be secured with a low-cost battery-powered alarm available from most DIY stores.
Marking property stored in an outbuilding with a postcode can deter thieves.
Anyone with information about the break-ins can also contact charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
