Garage Burglary - Plumpton Lea

Alert message sent 25/10/2021 08:18:00

Information sent on behalf of West Yorkshire Police


Between 20th and 21st October unknown suspect(s) approach a property on Plumpton Lea, BD2 and break the garage window in order to gain entry. Once inside the suspect(s) steal a garden strimmer and a drill before making off unseen in an unknown direction.

Please check the security of your sheds/garages/outbuildings and consider the below crime prevention advice:

• Consider extending your home alarm system to the garage to detract intruders or fit a separate garage alarm.
• Garage defenders – these not only add extra security by preventing the tilt action of the door but also act as a visible deterrent.
• Don’t show criminals what’s inside - Cover the glass to prevent offenders from being able to see the contents of the shed or garage or use frosted glass
• Lock large items together – makes it harder for them to be removed in bulk.
• Consider closed shackle padlocks as they protect your shed from being broken into with bolt croppers and saws.
• Tamper proof screws - Installing coach bolts and clutch screws to the shed hinges.
• Shed bar – A steel bar that fits across the door and frame of the shed. It locks in position to stop the door being opened.
• Good quality shed hasp that protects the fixings from being tampered with.
• Removing valuables from sight.
• Shed alarm – motion sensor inside the shed and a door sensor.
• Security marking – mark your items with name/contact number/postcode - to improve the chances of getting them back in the event of loss or theft.

If you have any concerns for yourself or any of your neighbours please contact us online, 101 or contact your local PCSO.
