It has been stated that this week, scrap metal thieves have been stealing the public’s metal garden taps?!
It sounds bonkers, but at the moment they are after anything, so be wary of strangers hanging around outside, or lurking around people’s properties.
Sgt Damian Pemberton said: “We would urge anyone with information about metal thefts or anyone who has been offered brass taps, to get in touch. It is likely that the thieves will be weighing them in so someone must know something”.
