Anyone with information is asked to contact us by calling 101, quoting the crime reference numbers above.

Alternatively, you can contact independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

We also wanted to take the opportunity, especially over the festive period, to remind local residents about appropriate crime prevention advice around burglaries:

- Lock your shed or garage every evening, ensuring that you have a reliable and robust lock in place to deter any would-be burglars

- Mark your prized possessions by using a property or police approved forensic marking solution only visible under Ultraviolet light

- Ensure side gates are locked to prevent access to the rear of the property.

- Record the details of your property such as serial numbers for electronic goods on the Immobilise website (https://www.immobilise.com/)

- You know your local communities. If you notice anything out of the ordinary, such as someone tampering with a lock on a neighbour’s shed, please report it to us via 101.
