Police in Gloucester are urging homeowners to review their garage security after six break-ins in the space of a night.

Ping golf clubs, a lawnmower and five bottles of champagne were taken from a garage in Clover Piece in Abbeymead while a mountain bike was taken from an address in Blake Hill Way, keys from a garage in Silver Close in Tuffley and two bikes from a garage in Temple Close in Barnwood. There were also break-ins in The Oval and St Michael's Square.

All the burglaries happened overnight between late on Tuesday and the early hours of Wednesday.

Unlocked doors gave the burglars an easy opportunity in three of the cases and officers are now stressing the need for residents to make sure that their property is locked if they want to guard against becoming a victim.

Security advice can be found at www.gloucestershire.police.uk.

Anyone with information on any of these crimes should call 101 quoting incident 60 of November 14.

You can also give information anonymously by contacting the charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 or via www.crimestoppers-uk.org and you may receive a reward if someone is arrested and charged.

    Garages and sheds are easier to break into then houses, people often store valuable items in them, and criminals know that if they get caught the crime is far less serious than burglary of a residence.
