editorial image

A spate of garage burlgaries and attempted burglaries took place in Luton and Caddington over three days.

Doors of garages in Dorel Close, Elmore Road, Brill CLose, Mayfield Road, Briar Close, Bracklesham Gardens and Applecroft Road were damaged between January 6 and 9.

Two incidents in Collings Wells Close in Caddington were also reported after someone attempted to gain entry to garages.

In most of the cases the crimes happened in the early evening or overnight and the garage doors appear to have been rammed as the would be burglars have tried to gain access to the items stored inside.

During the incident in Briar Close the offenders got away with a lawn mower and two mountain bikes and during the incident in Applecroft Road they got away with a black and white Fuji bike.

Officers are keen to remind members of the public to be extra vigilant in these areas and to check all the property stored inside their garages is security marked and the locks to their garages are double checked.

Anyone with information relating to these incidents is urged to contact Bedfordshire Police, in confidence, on 101, or text information to 07786 200011.

Alternatively you can contact the independent crime fighting charity Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
