Police are warning householders to ensure their property is secure following an attempted break-in at Carlton Scroop.
During Sunday night, an attempt was made to enter an outbuilding and a panel was badly damaged in the attempt. The offenders didn’t manage to gain entry.
A police spokesman said it was unlikely the offenders were seen because of the time and location but anybody with information should call the police on 101 quoting incident number 209 of August 26.
The spokesman added: “Given the change in weather the nights seem to be darker much earlier, so please check your property to ensure it is secure. If you have security lighting I would advise you check it to ensure the glass is clean and the light, bulbs and sensors are in full working order.”
