Residents Warned After Shed Break In Spate

Thursday July 19 2012



POLICE are warning residents in the Hoyland area to be more vigilant after a spate of thefts from sheds and garages.

Sgt Phil Jenkins, of Hoyland SNT, said the nature of the crimes suggested they were being committed by people looking to make a quick bit of cash.

He said: "Clearly they're easy targets overnight and we're appealing for people to secure their properties and report anyone acting suspiciously."

An incident on Cloughfields Road, Hoyland, was reported to police between July 8 and 9 when an attempt was made to remove a garage window.

On July 8 an alarm was set off at around 12.30am at a property on Sheffield Road, Hoyland Common with damage done to a garage door.

The previous week a stable was broken into on Upper Hoyland Road between July 2 and 4 with riding equipment stolen.

Sgt Jenkins said: "We do rely on the public being a bit nosy. If they hear anything then they should phone straight away rather than wait for the morning."

Earlier this month two incidents were reported on Longfields Crescent, Hoyland with a ground floor window forced at one property between July 2 and
4 while an attempt was made to force a PVC door at another address on July 4.

On the same day, a games console was stolen from a house on Wombwell Road, Platts Common.

Sgt Jenkins said tackling the problem was a top priority for Hoyland SNT.

Police might as well be gardens gnomes, They make no attempt to catch those responsible, but are all too quick in slapping a £60 fine on people speeding because it is a result with no work at all.
Just had 20K worth nicked, so might just consider taking matters into my own hands...... Lets be honest the police won't be bothered to catch up with me.
another epic fail from south Yorkshire police.
