Shed breaks

There have been a series of shed breaks in Woodland Road and Kingston Avenue, Worcester overnight 21st - 22nd November 2018.

If you have seen anyone acting suspicious and have CCTV please contact 101.

Keep your shed in good condition

  • Fit a good quality closed shackle padlock to the door
  • Hasp and staples should be bolted through the door
  • Secure the hinges by using either clutch screws by replacing a couple of screws with bolts
  • Fit grilles or mesh to the windows
  • Old net curtains on the inside can obscure the contents of the shed
  • Invest in an alarm
  • Large items such as bicycles should be chained together.  It is much more difficult for a thief to carry away a lot of large heavy items all at once
  • Mark your property with your postcode and house number/name
  • Register your property at

To report garden crime call 101.  In an emergency call 999.
