POLICE are urging residents to secure their sheds following a spate of break-ins.
Almost 50 offences have been reported in the past four weeks across Huntingdonshire and Fenland with thieves targeting unsecured sheds.
Last week offenders broke into sheds in allotments and police received reports of seven break-ins - including ata Chatteris - during Wednesday night.
Bicycles, tools and fishing equipment were stolen.
Community Safety Officer Julie Hanrahan said: “I would urge shed owners to invest in security devices to help deter thieves. Closed shackle padlocks and shed alarms can help prevent break-ins, and it is also worth property marking high value items.”
Eight burglaries have been reported in March and four in Wisbech.
