Information sent on behalf of Northamptonshire Police

Northamptonshire Police are appealing for information regarding a Burglary non dwelling on Fulmar Lane, Wellingborough. Unknown persons have gained entry to a garage by breaking the door handle and breaking off a padlock. Unknown what items have been taken from within. This took place between 13:00 on 27/09/2019 and 11:00 on 04/10/2019.
Did you witness anything?
Did you see any person(s) in the area that looked suspicious?
If so, then please contact Northamptonshire Police on 101 quoting Ref: 19000529822.
If you have a garage, please consider the below crime prevention advice:
If you have a household alarm fitted, consider extending the system into the garage area to detect intruders.
Purchase a separate garage alarm, which can be connected to a standard electrical 240v socket with three-pin plug.
Fit a garage door blocker on the outside of the door. This product bolts permanently to the floor, has a large 'T' bar shaped restrictor and a quality locking device.
Consider fitting a pair of garage door locks that are fitted either vertically or horizontally and can be locked either from the inside or outside of the garage.
Install dead bolts mounted one on each edge of the door inside the garage. When in use, the locks throw a bolt into the doorframe or the concrete floor of the garage.
Various good quality 'up and over' or 'rolling' deadlocking door handles can be purchased to replace any existing poor quality locks to give better security.
Consider purchasing loop cables. These have a long braided steel cable and a two-bolt anchor locking point. These fix to garage walls or floors and can be passed through expensive property such as quad bikes, etc. Some cables are alarmed.
