Lead thieves target properties in same Long Sutton street

LEAD flashing was stolen from windows of several properties in the same Long Sutton street.

Thieves struck overnight between Thursday 22 and Friday September 23 taking lead from above the bay windows of several homes in The Sidings, Long Sutton.

PCSO Ben Harrington said: “Lead thieves have targeted properties this way in the past and, with the current high value of scrap lead, this type of flashing above windows remains vulnerable.

“We urge residents to keep a vigilant eye, to report all suspicious persons and vehicles and to consider the use of property marking systems such as SmartWater”.
