Spate of thefts hits Moorland and Boultham

Theft spate: Police are looking for information on a large number of thefts in Lincoln this weekend.

Police are asking Lincoln residents to be vigilant after a spate of thefts and break-ins in the Boultham and Moorland areas, between September 25 to 26.

Officers are particularly reminding people to make sure cars and properties are locked up properly overnight.

A car on Bowden drive, which had been left unlocked, had a satnav and bank cards stolen overnight between Sunday 25 and Monday 26 September.

A property on Eastbrook Road was burgled at 5am on September 26 due to the door being left unlocked overnight, however the resident scared off the offender, who ran away with only the house and car keys.

Offenders then returned to the property at 10pm on the same day to steal the car from the address. Police later managed to stop the car on Meadowlake Crescent, arresting three youths.

In the Boultham area, between September 25 and 26, a number of garages have been broken into by force on Hunt Lea Avenue, Boultham Park Road, Peppercorn Close and an attempt on Western Crescent.

Items from the garages, such as golf clubs, a toolbox and pipe grips have not been recovered yet.

At the same time, items were stolen from a car on Harrington Avenue, but the items were found nearby by police.

Anyone with information on any of the above crimes should contact PCSO Katie O’Rourke on 0300 111 0300, or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
