Police target thieves after spate of garage and shed raids in East Lothian
Police are advising householders to take extra steps to secure sheds and garages after a spate of break-ins over the past week in the Stoneybank area of Musselburgh.
Valuable bikes and other items have been stolen from different addresses and police are looking to catch the culprits.
In a post on Facebook, East Lothian police said: ‘If you do have valuable items in your shed, please consider a shed alarm which is inexpensive, can be bought online and easy to install.
‘As part of our Policing Commitments to tackle acquisitive crime we have purchased a number of shed alarms which we can supply and fit free of charge. These are for elderly and vulnerable residents who reside in the area and will form part of a crime prevention survey.
‘If you, or someone you know fits the criteria above please send details to [email protected] and we will get back to you.’
