Information sent on behalf of Bedfordshire Police

Good afternoon

We would like to make you aware of what seems to be a continued rise of garage break-ins around the Goldington and Newnham area.

Although people do park vehicles in garages, they are commonly used to store DIY tools, bicycles and other equipment which all adds up in terms of value. In regard to prevention advice, please pay attention to hinges and locks, identifying any weaknesses and be sure to rectify these issues. Think about the cost of a robust lock in comparison to the potential loss of items in the garage. Finally consider further security by locking high value items such as bicycles or generators  to anchor points within the garage in order to make it harder for these items to be removed should entry be gained. It has been noted that access to houses has been gained through the weaker points of garages, so considerations of security need to be paid attention to all points of access ensuring they are locked when not in use.

We urge you all to please remain vigilant and report any suspicious activity though the appropriate channels. Please do not report activity or crime on this platform.

Many thanks,
