On 22nd June unknown suspects approach a farm on Lees lane, Haworth gain entry via a low wall. The suspects then have a look around the outbuildings with torches before making their way to the front of the farmhouse where they look around the owners car. Suspects leave the farm and are captured on CCTV. One of the suspects is seen to be in possession of a pair of bolt croppers.

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.
