POLICE have recovered stolen property valued at over £3million from criminals in a county-wide crackdown.

Quad bikes, jewellery, building materials and a lorry carrying a crane are just some of the items seized by officers since the launch of Operation Lockdown in October 2013.

Sat navs, car stereos, TVs, mobile phones and games consoles have also been recovered from burglaries and vehicle thefts.

If it's been possible, items have been returned to their owners.

Chief Inspector Iain Chorlton said: "Having valuable or personal items stolen from your home or car is a distressing experience.

"We're doing our utmost to track down criminals and recover stolen items.

"More importantly, the public can help by registering their property on the 'Immobilise' website.

"It's quick and free to use and could help individuals get their items back if they're lost or stolen."

Anyone with information about burglary or vehicle crime should contact South Yorkshire Police on 101, or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
