Hot weather sparks crime warn­ing

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Uk&world Update -

WITH the warmer weather upon us po­lice are re­mind­ing peo­ple to en­sure that items in their gar­dens are kept locked away or se­cured when left unat­tended for long pe­ri­ods.

The alarm has been sounded af­ter two in­ci­dents in the last week where res­i­dents in Elm and Leverington near Wis­bech, have had petrol lawn­mow­ers taken from their gar­dens.

Po­lice say of­fi­cers have also been called out to prop­er­ties that have had gar­den pa­tio fur­ni­ture taken.

Now po­lice are urg­ing res­i­dents to en­sure that any items that are of value or at risk of be­ing taken, are stored in­side the house, a garage or in a pad­locked gar­den shed.

Of­fi­cers are also ask­ing peo­ple to pad­lock any ac­cess gates to their prop­erty in a bid to re­duce the risk of valu­able items be­ing taken.
