Garages broken into in Birchmore

Thieves were active in the area again last night, breaking into 6 garages in Birchmore and stealing hundreds of pounds worth of tools and other items and damaging one garage door.

The perpetrators are probably the same lowlives that broke into the sheds at Stirchley allotments a couple of weeks ago.  The advice is the same as always - make sure you keep your shed and garages secure and invest in an alarm if you keep anything valuable in them.

Sadly there is no way to stop a determined thief, you can only hope to make it inconvenient enough to deter the casual criminal and with cuts to police budgets in Telford it's only going to get worse.
