On the night of 10th November/early hours of 11th November outbuildings behind a property on Colneford Hill were broken into. Padlocks were broken and door furniture damaged. Several pieces of garden equipment were stolen including two very valuable chain saws and a hedge cutter.
It is believed that the thieves could have entered the property via the footpath along the Colne Valley as a garden gate had been left wide open.
Although we are lucky to live in a low crime area, this is one of the most common types of incident in this and other villages.
Unfortunately, it does not guarantee your property against theft or damage, but please ensure that your sheds, garages, etc are well secured and that valuable items are stored out of sight.
