Seven sheds or garages have been broken into in Chatteris within the last 12 days according to a map that highlights burglaries which has been created by the town crier.
Lawrence Wheetman, who has started mapping all of the break-ins mentioned on the Chatteris Discussion Facebook page since December 8, said: "It looks like there is a definite spate of burglaries that are probably being committed by the same people.
"I'm hoping to try and spot a pattern, encourage more people to report incidents and suspicious activity to the police, and try help people feel a bit safer.
"Chatteris has a strong sense of community, so hopefully raising the profile of this will bring everyone together to look out for one another."
On the map any burglaries or attempted break-ins are marked with red pins while suspicious activity is marked by blue pins.
