Our Safer Neighbourhood officers covering an area of Mickleover have issued advice after three garages were broken-in to on one night.
The incidents happened in the early hours of Monday, September 4 earlier this week when garages on Siskin Close and Duesbury Place on the old Pastures Hospital site were broken in to. Bike parts, tools and a petrol were stolen.
PCSO Jamie Gutberlet, from the Hilton, Hatton and Etwall Safer Neighbourhood Team that covers this part of Mickleover, said: “We want to make residents aware of the break-ins so they can take some precautions that would help prevent them becoming victims.”
Officers advise that:
- All garage doors are locked and secured
- In addition to locks that an alarm covering the garage is considered
- That valuable property within the garage are separately locked with the use of a good quality padlock and chain
- That property is security marked and registered on www.immobilise.com
