“But we’d like to remind residents to make sure they take precautionary steps to secure their garages and homes, preventing valuable items being stolen.”
Police are advising people not to leave ladders outside and to make sure all doors and windows are locked and no valuable items are left on show.
Double garage doors with a rim latch should be supplemented with a mortice deadlock, while padlocks can be fitted to standard ‘up and over’ garage doors.
If a garage is attached to the main building, people are advised to ensure connecting doors are secure.
Officers also advise fitting alarms, security lights and cameras to deter burglars.
