SHED BREAKS

Alert message sent 02/03/2022 15:19:00

Information sent on behalf of Gloucestershire Constabulary


We are still experiencing shed breaks in the area where push bikes are being stolen. There have been no attempts to gain access to houses, just sheds and the sheds are being forced open.
Below are a few tips to improve the security around your shed:
• Shut and lock any gates into a back garden.
• Secure sheds with grilles over windows, strong hinges and a good lock.
• Security lights can have a positive effect, so think about installing one.
• Display a sign warning thieves that all valuables have been removed.
• Fit a shed alarm to the inside of your shed, and put a sign up saying the shed has an alarm.
• Photograph valuables and record serial numbers.
• Record serial numbered items on ‘www.immobilse.com’.
• Forensically mark valuable items with a UV pen or Smart Water.
• Lock valuables, even when inside the shed.

Do not leave wheelie bin/s near the side gate, as offender/s can use this to gain access.
