Householders in north Norfolk are being urged to be vigilant after a number of thefts.
Three sheds were broken into on Back Lane, Buxton between 6pm on Tuesday, May 2 and 8.30am on Wednesday, May 3, and a chainsaw and a jerry can of petrol were stolen.
About £2,000 worth of power tools were stolen from a Ford Transit van as it was parked in St Andrew’s Close, Buxton early on May 3. A cash box was stolen from a garage on Mill Road, Horstead, between 6.15pm on May 2 and 8.30am on May 3.
Meanwhile, two containers were broken into on Church Street in Coltishall between Friday, April 28 and May 2 and power tools were stolen.
Sgt Stuart Austin said: “Most shed breaks are carried out by opportunist thieves, therefore ensure you lock and secure your shed and garage. Residents should report any suspicious behaviour to police on 101 or call 999 if you believe a crime is in progress.”
