Following a spate of thefts from sheds on allotment sites across Exeter, local police teams are conducting enquiries in the area.
They are visiting all allotment sites and giving out crime prevention advice. Patrols during the evening and early hours have also been increased, as well as adopting other covert policing methods.
"The thefts from sheds have mainly been small petrol cans. We advise people to invest in a good quality padlock". said Chief Inspector Terry Bissessar.
Local policing team support officers are liaising with the local authorities in respect of the bollards situation in Cowick Lane.
"We would like to reassure our communities that we are doing everything possible to catch and convict the criminals responsible” said Mr Bissessar.
