Information sent on behalf of Sussex Police

Tuesday 7th September 2021

If you have a garden, this time of year many people will be thinking about getting their garden ready for winter and spending more time in the shed, garage or outbuilding. But, many people don’t secure their shed or garage in the same way they do their homes, often using an easy-to-break lock or padlock to protect valuable contents such as a car, bike or lawnmower.
An opportunistic burglar will try a shed or garage first because they can find the tools they need to break into the main house.
