This applies not only to your home but your car, shed, garage and any other outbuildings that you own. It is imperative that these are kept safe and secure — otherwise you run the risk of them being targeted.
"Don't leave yourself vulnerable to opportunist thieves, so please take the time to check you have taken all of the necessary security measures."
Officers have now launched a full investigation into the incidents and as part of their investigation they are keen to hear from anyone with any information in relation to the incidents which took place in the Cuddington area of Malpas.
