There were two further reports of opportunistic thefts from the Tilston area at the beginning of the week. Some scrap metal was stolen from the rear garden of one property, whilst another address had their shed broken into and a number of tools were stolen. Last week I reported a number of similar offences in the Tilston area. I urge local residents to be extra vigilant and to report any suspicious activity straight away.
This week has seen a large increase in the number of reports about loose sheep and horses on the roads. This is a time of year when a lot of livestock is moved around and put into fields which have perhaps been fallow for a period. Landowners and livestock owners should ensure that fields are thoroughly checked for security before putting livestock in. This is particularly important if the field has not been used for livestock for a while.
If you have any information which could assist with any of these incidents, please contact the police.
