Shed burglaries in Chearsley

Thames Valley Police is appealing for information following two shed burglaries in Chearsley.

Between 1:45pm and 2pm on Thursday 19th June a resident in Dark Lane heard a noise in the back garden and saw a white man, described as heavy build, with grey hair, running from the location. 

A lawnmower and a chain saw had been taken from the shed.

Another shed burglary was reported on Elm Brook Close, sometime between Sunday 15th and Thursday 19th June – again a lawnmower was taken.

Please be vigilant with your own security and make sure that sheds and outbuildings are locked and consider using a shed alarm, which can be purchased at little cost from most garden centres and DIY stores.

Further crime prevention information and advice can be found on the Thames Valley Police site.

Make sure anything suspicious is reported to the police (at the time it is happening).  Try to get a description of them, along with details of any vehicle they may be using, especially the registration number.

PC Dean Kingham from the Waddesdon Neighbourhood Policing Team is the officer investigating these crimes.  If you have any information in relation to these incidents please call PC Kingham via the 24 hour Police Enquiry Centre number 101.

If you don’t want to speak to the Police or give your details you can contact the independent charity Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111, or report it online.  No personal details will be taken, information will not be traced or recorded and you will not have to go to court.
