£2,000 haul as raiders target sheds
by David Simister

SPORTS equipment worth more than £2,000 was stolen from garden sheds as police warned West Lancashire residents to pay attention to security.

A burglary happened on July 24 on Smithy Lane, Holmeswood, when the offenders broke into a shed and stole golf equipment worth £1,320.

Another home on the same road also had a shed burgled on the same night with fishing equipment worth over £1,000 stolen.

Raiders also broke into the village hall at Holmeswood on July 24 and took a petrol lawn mower, worth £200.

Southport and Ormskirk Bantam Society's base on Holmeswood Road in Rufford was targeted the same night, with the raiders forcing open the wooden door into the club house. A Flymo leaf blower, worth £65, and a hot water urn, worth £50, were taken.

If you have any more information about any of these incidents get in touch with the police on 101 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
