Police are warning residents and businesses to keep outbuildings and vehicles secure after thieves stole household products and food.

The warning comes after two sheds were broken into in Norfolk over the weekend and in a separate theft, raiders stole groceries from a car.

Superintendent Mike Britton said: “We have seen a few cases of thefts where household and food items have been targeted by people we believe are taking advantage of current events.

“I would urge home owners to ensure they lock and secure sheds and insecure outdoor buildings and motorists should not leave items on display in vehicles.

“I would also encourage any businesses who have to leave outbuildings unattended due to working from home or self-isolation, to take extra security measures at this time to stop opportunistic thieves.”
