You may recall from our bulletin and social media post from last week that we have seen an increase in reports of burglaries to sheds, garages and outbuildings across Chichester district.
We have since received further reports of similar offences in the Emsworth, Petworth, Midhurst and Haslemere areas.
Some of the properties targeted had been left unlocked. It can take seconds for a thief to steal your belongings so we would like to remind everyone to ensure that you leave your property secure when unattended or not in use.
Valuables stolen include bikes, sports and fishing equipment and power tools.
Keep it locked.
Install security lights
Install an alarm
Install CCTV.
If you already have CCTV, ensure it is in good working order.
Please be assured that our teams are continuing with patrols and following up all enquiries to identify those responsible.
We would ask you to report any suspicious behaviour to us straight away. If you can assist us with any information then please contact us on 101 or online.
