Sheds and garages easy tar­gets

Central Leader - - News -

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.
