Appeal and advice after two sheds are broken into in Hathersage

Posted on 7th March 2018

We are appealing for information and asking people to be alert after two sheds have been broken into in Hathersage.

Both sheds were targeted sometime overnight between Monday, February 26 and Tuesday, February 27 on Crossland Road.

A garden fork was stolen from one shed, and bike wheels stolen from another. The items were later recovered nearby

PCSO Anthony Boswell of the Hathersage 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 Anthony Boswell on 101, quoting reference number 18*92951, or send him a message online through the Contact Us page of the website, by clicking here.

You can also call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
