Non-Dwelling Burglaries

At the beginning of the month Chilbolton was targeted for a number of non-dwelling burglaries the thieves gained entry to sheds and garages and stole items over a three day period. It is a reminder that whilst our villages are usually crime-free, it is important to still be aware of the potential for opportunistic thieves & take steps to minimise the risks of it happening to your dwelling.

Now that the summer is over and many items are stored in outbuildings, please consider the following:

Place all tools and garden equipment in locked sheds and garages.
Secure more expensive items, e.g. mowers, bikes to an anchor point within the shed or garage.
Mark all items with postcode and record serial numbers. e.g. UV pens or forensic marking kits. Register the details for free on www.immobilise.com
Take photographs of items such as statues and garden furniture if they are unusual, for easy identification at a later date.
Fit a shed alarm. Keep the structure in good repair.
Consider covering windows with curtains to obscure the view of the contents.
Consider external lighting.
Ensure the garden fences are in good repair between neighbours to prevent unlawful access.
Ensure side gates are locked to prevent access to the rear of the property.

For more advice please visit the Hampshire Constabulary Website. If you do witness anything unusual that could assist the police, please contact 101.
