Police are asking householders to make sure their homes are secure overnight following a number of burglaries in the past month.
Police say there have been burglaries and attempted burglaries at homes in the Grantham East areas of Kingscliffe Road, New Beacon Road, Harrowby Road, Dudley Road and Inner Street. A number of sheds have also been broken into and items stolen.
There have also been a number of bike thefts in the area in the last few weeks on Inner Street, Dudley Road and Gladstone Terrace.
A police spokesman said: “Please can you make sure you lock your property whenever you are leaving the premises, also perhaps leave a light on at night if leaving your property and curtains are drawn. Also make sure nothing valuable is left on show. Make sure all out buildings are securely locked with a strong padlock.
“Please lock your bikes up if leaving unattended or make sure they are put away out of sight.”
If you see anything suspicious or have anything to report call the police on 101 or contact your local NPT team.
