Allotment Break-ins

This is a message sent via Thames Valley Alert and has been sent on behalf of Thames Valley Police.

You may be aware that a number of allotment sheds/outbuildings were broken into overnight.

Sometime between 6pm yesterday (3/8) and 8am today (4/8) entry was forced into a total of 18 sheds on the allotments off Quainton Road in Waddesdon. A strimmer and a broken hedge cutter were stolen.

It is thought the incidents could be linked to a burglary at an industrial building in Winchendon Road, Chearsley, between about 6.30pm yesterday and 7am today in which a chainsaw was taken.

Thames Valley Police is investigating.

PC Tom Chalk, from Waddesdon Neighbourhood Policing Team, said: “Waddesdon is generally a safe area and we are hopeful this is an isolated incident.
“I would like to speak to anyone who saw anything suspicious and might be able to provide any information about what happened.
“I would take this opportunity to ask residents to take a moment and check the security of their sheds and garages.
“Information about how to keep your property safe is available on the Thames Valley Police website.”

Anyone who has any information or saw anything suspicious please contact PC Tom Chalk at Waddesdon Police Station via the 24-hour Thames Valley Police enquiry centre on 101.
