A garage at a house in Gretton Road, Winchcombe was entered during the night of 23rd and 24th September.  The garage door was forced open but nothing appears to have been stolen.  The offenders also made an unsuccessful attempt to take a bike carrier of a vehicle parked in the area.

Bike carriers left on vehicles parked outside homes may indicate to a thief that there are expensive bikes stored in a shed or garage and they may be tempted to look inside. Please consider removing these carriers unless they are in regular use.
