Welding equipment stolen from town estate

Tuesday, 1st May 2012.

Police in Haverhill are appealing for information after welding equipment was stolen from an house in Boyton Close.

The incident occurred between 5.30pm yesterday and 7am today.

Thieves forced entry to a detached garage, cutting a padlock that secured the door.

Various welding items were stolen including a red Clark welder model L160CN with copper regulator attached, and a green Adams nine-litre gas bottle, a solar-powered welding helmet with a red and white pinstripe design on the sides.

Police are urging everyone to take the following crime prevention tips to keep their property safe:
* Do not neglect the hinge either side of a door and use security screws or bolts through the fixings;
* Fit good quality mortice locks or padlocks one third up and one third down on the door to reduce the leverage available;
* Secure the windows with a weld mesh or a crime shield product secured from the inside remove the window if not required;
* Fit a security light and shed alarm to deter potential thieves;
* Use padlocks and chains to secure high value items including power tools, lawnmowers and cycles to an anchor and each other;
* Overtly security mark your property with your house number and postcode.

Calls on the recent incident at Boyton Close can be made to Sgt Sarah Bartley, quoting crime number HH/12/927 on 101, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
