Police are appealing for information and encouraging residents to be security conscious after cycles have been stolen from three sheds in Heanor during the past month.

The latest incident was reported to police on Saturday, November 17. Thieves had broken into a locked shed in the back garden of a house on Joan Avenue and taken a BMX bike and mini moto.

Another BMX bike was stolen from a shed on Park Street sometime overnight between Thursday, November 1 and Friday, November 2 and three cycles were taken from the shed in the back garden of a house on Fletcher Street sometime over the weekend between Friday, November 2 and Sunday, November 4.

Officers are advising residents to take steps to ensure that sheds and cycles are kept secure by investing and using heavy duty padlocks for sheds and bike chains.

Residents should also consider fitting a shed alarm, to security mark their property and to register bicycles with register schemes, such as Immobilise, so that it can be returned to its owners should it be stolen and recovered.

Anyone with information about these incidents should contact Derbyshire police on 101, the non emergency number, or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

Further advice on garden and shed security can be found on the Derbyshire police website: or contact Ian Wheeler at Amber Valley Locksmiths for a free security review.
