Stevenage garages suffer break-ins
POLICE are warning people to secure their garages, following a number of break-ins in the Oaks Cross area of Broadwater, Stevenage.
The first break in occurred between January 5 at 9am and January 6 at 2.30pm, where offenders forced entry to two garages in Lygrave, although no property was stolen.
A further two garages were broken into between 8pm on January 5 and 12pm on January 6 on Elbow Lane. Offenders stole a red Maguires car polisher, a yellow Karcher pressure washer and car cleaning agents from one of the garages.
The other garage suffered damage from an attempt to gain entry. In all of these cases, the offenders made off from the scene in an unknown direction.
“I am appealing for anyone who may have seen anything suspicious in the area over the past week or so to get in touch,” said Detective Inspector Gary Atkinson.
You may also want to watch:
“If they are offered any items which you believe may have been stolen from garages, I would strongly urge you to get in touch as well.
“In these cases, the garages were all locked. However, it may be good for local residents to consider other deterrents like external lighting around their garage or further security measures like a padlock on the door, or a strengthened door.”
