We have received reports of a person acting suspiciously around the Marketfields area in Eccleshall on Saturday 19th March 2022. This person was seen entering/leaving several driveways at this location on Saturday evening without making any attempt to knock on the door. No crimes have been reported on this occasion, but please remain vigilant. See below crime prevention advice:

Crime prevention advice:
- Close and lock all your doors and windows, even if you’re only going out for a few minutes.
- Double-lock any door.
- Make sure that any valuables are out of sight.
- Keep handbags away from the letterbox or cat flap and hide all keys including are keys, as a thief could hook keys or valuables through even a small opening.
- Never leave car documents or ID in obvious places such as kitchens or hallways.
- In the evening, shut the curtains and leave lights on.
- If you’re out all day, then it’s advisable to use a timer device to automatically turn lights on at night.
