Burglary - Oakley

Alert message sent 08/04/2020 09:16:00

Information sent on behalf of Hampshire Constabulary

Good morning,

I'd like to make you aware of the following:

On the 06/04/2020 at 19:10, unknown offender(s) have entered a garage and stolen a Carrera mountain bike from a property on Hill Way, Oakley. If you have any information that could assist Police, please call 101 if urgent or follow this link quoting 44200123526.

There has been an increase in bike thefts across the rural. There are certain measures you
can take to reduce the likelihood of becoming a victim yourself, such as:

• Marking your bicycle with your postcode will deter a potential thief.
• Registering your bicycle on along with a photo and serial number. This
will assist the police with identifying recovered property.
• Always securing bicycles to a stand if available. Otherwise use a static object such as a lamp post or railing.
• Securing your bicycle with a Sold Secure D lock.
• Quick release accessories are vulnerable. Consider replacing the lever with a security bolt or
remove them when leaving the bicycle.
• Lights are made detachable, so remove them before a thief does.
• Fit an alarm to your garage or shed – most DIY stores stock battery- operated alarms suitable for this purpose.
• Make sure your garage or shed is fitted with a good strong lock, padlock, door hinges or other security device such as a Garage Defender.
• Make sure items inside the garage or shed are secure – large items can be padlocked together or you could sink a post into the floor of the garage and padlock items to the post.
• Always remember to lock your garage or shed after use.
• Do not store large quantities of valuables in your garage and shed.
• Keep property and fencing in good repair and ensure that foliage and trees are kept trimmed.
• Check with your insurance company that you are covered for items stored in your garage or shed.
