We’re appealing for witnesses after two shed burglaries in Farncombe earlier this week.
Both burglaries occurred on Barnes Road at some point between 10pm on Wednesday, 5 October and 8am on Thursday, 6 October. Entry was forced to sheds in the back gardens of two properties and three bicycles were stolen.
Sergeant Michael Knight said: “We’re carrying out enquiries in the area and are keen to speak to anyone who noticed anything suspicious on Barnes Road earlier this week.
“We believe these two offences may be linked and would encourage residents to remain vigilant and review the security at their property. Sadly outbuildings can be a target for opportunistic thieves so it’s important to make sure your sheds and garages are secured with good padlocks. Items inside should be padlocked or fixed to a secure point.”
