Burglaries and thefts in rural locations

Alert message sent 14/03/2020 14:02:00

Information sent on behalf of Lincolnshire Police

Good afternoon
This is Chris Ivett at Horncastle NPT.
We have had a spate of burglaries/thefts in rural villages around Horncastle and  are appealing for information relating to these.

The first was at a farm at Edlington.  Fencing was smashed to gain entry to a yard and then an angle grinder was used to cut hinges off the door of a shed.  The only item taken was a Stihl hedge trimmer.  Many other valuable items were left behind.  This may mean that the criminals were intending to return or that they were disturbed.  Evidence indicates that they left the yard in their vehicle via the damaged fence and drove off on the A158.  (incident Number 55 of the 12th March).

In Haltham, a break-in to a workshop led to a landrover being stolen.  The vehicle is blue with a white roof and has the registration number of L529YNX.  A small window was forced to access the keys of the vehicle ad a roller door was opened by using an angle grinder on the locks.  The vehicle was seen heading towards Kirkby on Bain. (Incident Number 469 of 11 March)

Finally in Horsington, a burglary took place at a residential dwelling.  Cash was removed from the property which had been ransacked.  Tradesmen had access to the property for renovation work and it is believed there is a link between the burglary and someone who had access is possible. (Incident number 136 of 13 March).

If you are able to help with our enquiries, please ring 101 quoting the incident number and date of the incident.  If you wish to review your outdoor security arrangements, there is information on the Lincolnshire Police website under crime prevention.
Thank you.
