In the last few weeks on the Ashurst, Copythorne South and Netley Marsh beat we have seen an increase in the number of shed burglaries which I wanted to make you aware of.
Since the 24/05 there have been the following incidents:
- Shed broken into on Woodlands Road where tools were stolen
- Shed broken into on Southampton Road, Cadnam where lead was stolen
- Shed broken into on Tatchbury Lane where a strimmer was stolen
- Shed broken into on Ashurst Bridge Road where a cement mixer was stolen
Worryingly there has also been a house burglary in the last few days on Woodlands Road where an amount of cash has been stolen.
This has possibly occurred after the resident has noted suspicious persons going door to door.
Whilst this is of concern at this time I would like to reassure you that we are doing everything we can to try and identify who may be committing these offences. I would ask that you please be alert and report any suspicious activity via 101.
Please also consider your security, consider alarms, CCTV, security marking, improved locks/padlocks etc. Please also consider photographing high value items and noting serial numbers.
