Crackdown on shed burglaries pays dividends

A CRACK-down on shed burglars in Salisbury paid dividends, with 34 arrests during November and December.

Inspector Andrew Noble of Wiltshire Police, told members of the Salisbury Area Board on Thursday that there had been a 20 per cent reduction in shed crime as a result.

He said his colleague Sergeant Tom Ellerby and his team had put in 105 hours of additional targeted patrolling. They had stopped and searched 114 people and made crime prevention visits to all victims of crime, with the fitting of numerous shed alarms. He said: “This is quite a significant success for Tom and his team.”
