13/02/2013

A recent report by the ‘Safer York Partnership’ showed that on average at least one garage in and around the York area is being burgled every day.

As part of an investigation into crime statistics, the organisation reported that during the last seven months, there has been 195 garage break-ins, which is almost one every day.

Upon analysis of the garage crimes, it was found that almost 30% of owners in properties targeted by thieves had failed to lock their garage door. For those that were locked, the most common form of entry was to either bend the door back or cut into the door.

The most common items stolen included power tools, gardening equipment, bikes and sport / leisure equipment such as fishing rods.
In the seven months between April and October 2012, there were 796 burglaries in York in total, with garage, shed and outbuilding theft being around 28% of the total.

In response Police and security experts urged York residents to be vigilant and ensure all garages and sheds were locked during the night.
