Police are appealing for information following a series of shed burglaries in Aylsham.
The incidents happened overnight on Sunday 13 January when suspect(s) targeted sheds in the rear gardens of five properties on Canon Hoare Road.
Three sheds were broken into after offender(s) forced metal hasps on the door although nothing was stolen. Two other sheds were targeted although suspect(s) failed to gain access.
PC Rob Devlin said: “A lot of people will store expensive items in shed such as bikes, tools and garden equipment so it’s worthwhile investing in security.
“A decent padlock and a battery-powered shed alarm are another cost-effective ways to help protect your property. Most alarms cost just a few pounds and let off a considerable noise which could help deter would-be thieves.
“I would also encourage residents to property mark valuables, making it harder for criminals to sell on while also helping police to identify recovered stolen property.”
