There were only two dwelling burglaries reported to Lincolnshire Police between August 11 and August 14, both using forced entry.
The result comes from the Force’s current Help Yourself campaign in Lincoln, which highlights to residents the importance of securing your home from potential thieves to help lower the recent spike in burglaries.
This week, in both incidents offenders used forced entry to access the homes.
However, while nothing was taken in one case, the other got away with a car and its keys.
The incidents were:
- Hykeham Road – Forced entry
