Thefts in Upper Rissington

Gloucestershire Police – 8 November 2021

We have received a number of calls over the weekend of thefts from commercial vehicles where tools have been stolen.
These have occurred across the area in Paxford and Upper Rissington. Also a commercial shed has been broken into in Bastford Road.

With darker evenings we advise looking into extra security at home and work using WIDE:

  • Window locks
  • Indoor lights on timer switches
  • Double or deadbolted fitted to doors
  • Exterior lights on a sensor

Also consider a CCTV systems some of which now record sound and night vision. Doorbell cameras can cover driveways.
It is best to place lights and cameras high up so they cannot be broken easily.

Many thanks
