HOMEOWNERS are being urged to tighten security for their sheds and outbuildings following a spate of thefts in South Holland.
Police say both urban and rural areas have been hit, with metal, diesel and heating oil tanks being targeted by thieves.
Sgt Stuart Hurst, from Spalding Police Station, said officers have been particularly focusing their efforts around Holbeach and Whaplode.
He said four arrests have been made so far relating to separate matters, with all four suspects currently on bail pending further inquiries.
Sgt Hurst said: “We would ask homeowners to keep things secure; do not make it easy for them and report suspicious matters.”
Details of suspicious vehicles should include the registration number. Anyone with information should contact Lincolnshire Police on 101.
