Residents reminded to keep garages secure following spate of break-ins

Overnight on Friday, October 10, into Saturday, October 11, at least nine garages in Lilywhite Crescent and Olaf Close were targeted. Locks were forced and some garages were entered. Some beer was stolen from one garage.

PC Paddy Coveney said: “Were you in the area at the time? Did you see or hear anything unusual?

“I’d also like to remind people to ensure their garages are secure, to check them regularly and, where possible, not to store valuable items inside.

Anyone with any information about these incidents is asked to contact PC Coveney at Andover Police Station on 101 or call the charity Crimestoppers line on 0800 555 111, where information can be left anonymously.
