Local police have re-issued advice to people to check their sheds and ensure that they are locked and secure with good quality locks.
The reminder follows a series of shed break-ins the Dafen and Llwynhendy areas in recent weeks, most recently in the Cilsaig road / Welsh Terrace area of Dafen on the 18th August 2013.
Locks have been forced and garden power tools and other items taken. These have included soft drinks, hand and power tools, a Carerra Vengeance pedal cycle and Adidas trainers.
“These offences appear to be happening during the night time,” said Sergeant Ian Francis. “We are putting extra patrols on during the night shift in order to catch and deter the offenders. But we also need local residents to help us stop these criminals.
“Please make sure you’re sheds and other outbuildings are securely locked and please consider installing security lighting or event an alarm if possible.
“I’d also ask that if you hear or see any suspicious activity, if you’ve been offered any garden tools or if you have any information regarding these offences to please contact Llwynhendy Police on 101.”
