Police are promising they will increase their patrols after no fewer than four thefts in Tetney overnight on Monday night to Tuesday morning.

The first incident (inc 41) saw thieves steal two bicycles from a shed in Humberston Road in the village, between midnight and 7am on Tuesday.

One of the bikes was a men’s specialised hardrock mountain bike in silver, black and red.

The other bike was a ladies’ Electra Amsterdam in white which had a large brown wicker basket on the front. Police say the Electra Amsterdam is ‘very distinctive’ and was bought from abroad.

Shortly after thieves took a wallet from inside an unlocked car parked in the Market Place in Tetney (inc 138).

And money was stolen from another car which is believed to have been left unlocked (inc 306). The car was parked in Church Lane.

The fourth incident (inc 355) saw thieves enter an unlocked garage in Westlands Avenue but it is not yet known what was taken.

PCSO Sally Read of the Louth Rural Neighbourhood Policing Team said: “We cannot stress [enough] the importance of making sure that your vehicles, garages, sheds and any other outbuildings are locked and as secure as they can be.

“Patrols in the area will be increased and we would urge anyone to ring us should they see any suspicious behaviour in the area. “

Anyone with information about any of the crimes can call police on 101 with the relevant incident number.
