Lock up you garden sheds and garages warn Marlborough police
Lock-up your garden sheds and garages, keep your bikes secure. That is the advice of Marlborough police following a spate of three burglaries in the Barton Park area in which bikes and power tools have been stolen.
One mountain bike worth £700 has been stolen but other bikes, strimmers and petrol powered equipment have been recovered after the thieves dumped them on the Bath Road intending to pick them up later.
“With Christmas on the horizon there will be more thefts and householders need to lock up their garden sheds, garages and keep their property secure,” CPO Jonathan Mills told Marlborough News Online.
“They also need to check whether anything is currently missing and report all suspicious activity.”
Marlborough police have three bikes and four power tools in store awaiting identification and return to their owners.
