PEOPLE are being urged to be vigilant after an increase in thefts from vehicles and outbuildings across East Cambridgeshire.
Officers will be delivering leaflets offering advice on how to keep your property safe.
There have been 115 thefts from vehicles and 63 reports of shed burglaries since April.
Community safety officer Sue Loaker said: “We would urge people to remove valuables from cars and tools from vans when left parked up.
“Sheds and outbuildings should be locked and windows covered. It is also worth considering using a ground anchor to secure valuables or investing in a shed alarm.

“I would also urge people to report suspicious activity by calling police on 101 or 999 if there is a crime in action.”
For further security advice, contact Sue Loaker at Ely Police Station by calling 101.
