Burglars have targeted three homes in Baston, including two in the same street, at the weekend.

Two homes in Cardyke Drive and one on Colton Close were burgled between 5pm and 11pm on Saturday when intruders got in through back doors and windows.

Meanwhile, electrical items were stolen from a house in Bourne Road, Spalding, on Sunday, February 15, when a door was forced open.

Elsewhere, dragon and griffin-type garden ornaments were stolen from outside a house in Brewery Lane, Billingborough, between 9am and 11.45am on Saturday, February 14.

In Market Deeping, police are looking for a red men’s mountain bike, with a red child seat at the back, stolen from a house in Church Street after thieves got through a back gate overnight between last Monday and Tuesday.

Also in Market Deeping, a caravan was vandalised in Cedar Close between Friday and Saturday, February 13 and 14, while offices in Church Street were burgled overnight between last Monday and Tuesday.

Finally, shops in Bourne are being warned about a scam where fraudsters use large bank notes to cheat traders into giving them extra cash.

The warning comes after a cashier handed over £97 to a man asking for change from a £50 note at a petrol station in the town at about 4.45pm last Monday.

The man is described as white, five feet nine inches tall, medium-build and in his late-20s to early-30s.

He was shaven headed and wore a denim baseball cap, navy waist-length coat and blue jeans.

Anyone with information should call police on 101 or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
