Police are warning owners of buildings in rural areas to be vigilant after a series of break-ins and thefts.

On the evening of Friday, April 15, a workshop on Stamford Road, Colsterworth, was broken into when the corrugated roof of the building was prised open. The alarm sounded at 10.30pm and police believe this has deterred the offender. No one was seen leaving the area by the owner who had been alerted by the alarm.

If anybody recalls anything suspicious at that time in the Colsterworth area call police on 101 and quote incident 85 of April 16.

A Lincolnshire Police spokesman said: “There have been other similar thefts or attempted thefts in the rural area where offenders have taken advantage of remote locations where it is unlikely they will be observed in the act of breaking in. As such it is important to remain vigilant and take the details of suspicious vehicles in the areas surrounding business locations, reporting them via the 101 non-emergency number.”
