Break-ins and thefts during mini crimewave

A mini crimewave, involving break-ins and thefts across the Belper and Holbrook areas, has prompted an appeal from police.

Between Sunday, September 1 and Monday, September 2 there were seven such incidents reported to the Derbyshire force.

On Belper Road, Holbrook, a white and black Marin Millvalley bike was taken from a garage.

A rear garden outbuilding on Sandbed Lane, Belper was also raided when a hinge was unscrewed to allow access and a chainsaw, angle grinder, spade and power transformer were taken.

Also on Sandbed Lane, a shop window was smashed and display fireworks were taken.

Elsewhere on Whitemoor, on Yardley Way, an unlocked garage up-and-over door was opened and a green and gold BMX was taken.

And at Thornhill Avenue on Bargate a garage was entered and a chainsaw, hedge trimmer and garden strimmer were taken. Two vehicles were also entered by “unknown means” on Chapel Street and Moor Rise in Holbrook. However nothing is thought to have been taken.
