Rural Crime – message from Garstang Neighbourhood Response Sergeant Greg Laidlow

There has been a recent spate of Cash Machine Thefts (some just outside of our county but one recently in Hambleton) which have been hand in hand with agricultural machinery thefts (telehandlers in particular) which are being stolen from premises usually close to the target location.

My request is simply to ask that agricultural machinery owners make every effort to lock/secure their machinery to hinder this activity.

Likewise I would also like to ask that any suspicious activity that could be linked to this type of criminality or drugs related activity is reported either at the time if urgent on 101/999 or via crimestoppers and the neighbourhood police team (01995 607869) if non urgent.
