Advice to be vigilant following eight shed and garage breaks

Alert message sent 21/01/2019 15:41:00

Information sent on behalf of Notts Police

We're investigating eight incidents of sheds or garages being broken into in the Gedling area in the past week.

The incidents were reported to us between 8.15am on Tuesday 15 January in the Fernleigh Avenue area of Porchester through to 12.10pm today (Monday 21 January) in the Abbots Close area of Daybrook.

Other areas targeted were Moor Road in Papplewick and Woodland Grove, Valeside Gardens and Mile End Road area of Colwick.

Pedal cycles and tools have been taken.

Enquiries are ongoing and increased police patrols are taking place in the area and will continue over the coming days.

Advice is:
- Fit strong padlocks and hasps where possible to reduce risk of them being cut through.
- Consider fitting a battery operated alarm (Shed alarms work in a similar way)
- Security mark property and consider using anchor points to secure larger tools and equipment such as cycles/motorbikes etc
-  Register valuable property via the Immobilise website (particularly cycles)
- Consider any external lighting where possible.
- Consider installing CCTV
- Report any suspicious activity/behaviour to us on 101

If you saw anything suspicious in this area or have any information that could help, please call us on 101 quoting incident 185 of 19 January. You can also call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
