Police target Sedgemoor shed burglars
8:00pm Tuesday 20th August 2013 in News
POLICE are tackling thefts from sheds in Sedgemoor.
The Allotment Watch scheme has seen officers holding property-marking events at allotments across the area to prevent thefts of tools and equipment.
Equipment is marked with the owner’s postcode and initials, digital photos are taken and details of items are recorded on a national database.
North Petherton and Westonzoyland allotments have had equipment security marked and PCSO Jo Farrow hopes to hold more events over the next few months.
Jo said: “The events have been really well attended so far, but I’m keen to go to more allotments, so if there are any allotment groups or individual plot holders who would like us to have their property marked, call 101.”
