The nights are drawing in. Check that your shed or garage is secure. Make sure valuables are hidden from view, locked down, marked, and registered on immobilise.com. The opportunist burglar will typically try a shed or garage first to find the tools they need to break into the main house, or steal valuables that can make some easy cash.
According to Police, the top five most common items stolen from sheds are:
- Sports equipment
- Power tools
- Garden tools
