Sheds and garages easy targets
Police are advising people to increase the security of their garden sheds or garages after break-ins in Mt Eden and surrounding areas.
Avondale police constable Landon Pearce says sheds and garages are an easy target for criminals and often house golf clubs and tools while never having any alarms or decent locks.
He says the burglaries have decreased slightly in the past week but adds that if thieves have got away with it once then they will try it again.
Mr Pearce urges people to contact their local police station if they see suspicious activity.
