Police ask local people to remain vigilant after shed breaks in Enderby and Cosby

police carOfficers from Blaby local policing unit are advising owners of allotments to remain vigilant after a number of sheds were broken into in Enderby and also nearby Cosby.

Police have received a number of reports of allotment sheds being broken into between Monday January 27 and Friday February 14.

A number of the incidents occurred at the Mill Lane allotments in Enderby and one incident occurred at an allotment on Croft Road, Cosby.

During all of the incidents an attempt was made to enter the sheds by breaking the locks.

During two of the incidents a Honda petrol generator, an orange Stihl petrol strimmer and various garden tools were stolen.

Police Community Support Officer 6087 Emma Bailey, said:

“It’s very disappointing for those who have been the victims of these burglaries to come to their plots and find that someone has either stolen expensive tools from their sheds or has damaged the building in an attempt to get in.

“These incidents end up costing the owners a significant amount of money to replace the items and ensure their properties are secure.

“We would ask allotment owners to remain vigilant and report any suspicious activity in these areas to the police. If you have any information about the incidents or the stolen property we would like to speak to you.

If anyone has any concerns about the incidents or would like some crime prevention advice they are urged to contact 101 and speak to their local beat team, crime prevention details can also be found on the Force website http://www.leics.police.uk/advice-and-information/crime-prevention/burglary/garden-crime/sheds
