POLICE are appealing for witnesses after two industrial units in town and a village garage were broken into.

Burglars forced their way into two sites in the airfield industrial estate between 2am on Tuesday, January 21 and 6.30am on Wednesday, January 22.

Nothing was stolen from the first unit, in Moor Farm Road, but cash, a laptop and a tablet device were taken from a second site in the same road.

These break-ins come after a garage was targeted in Dalbury Lees between 10am on Monday, January 20 and 9.30am on Wednesday, January 22.

Two lawnmowers – a Honda and an Atco 17SK Balmoral model – were stolen from the garage after burglars forced the door open.

Damage was also caused to a nearby fence, which police believe was knocked down by the offenders during their escape.

A Derbyshire police spokesman said: “In each of these break-ins, the offenders forced open doors or garage doors and we are appealing for anyone who may have seen people acting suspiciously in those areas to call us.”

Witnesses or anyone with information or nearby CCTV should call Derbyshire police on 101 or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
