Police have offered advice to allotment holders in Grassmoor after two sheds were broken into.

Both sheds were targeted sometime overnight between Tuesday, October 4 and Wednesday, October 5 at the allotments off Mill Lane.

PCSO Hannah Disney of the Holmewood, Grassmoor, Calow and Arkwright Safer Neighbourhood Policing Team said: “We’re advising local residents and gardeners to make sure their sheds are secured after every time they use them, to avoid keeping valuable items and equipment inside and to invest in a good quality lock.

“Other measures you can take include installing an alarm and security marking your property as these steps can really help to deter thieves, and potentially help police to trace and return items back to you if they are recovered.”

Anyone with any information about the incidents, or who may have seen anything suspicious, should contact PCSO Hannah Disney on 101 quoting reference number 16000309541.
