Updated 10:09am Saturday 17th May 2014 in News
RESIDENTS in rural areas are being urged to lock up their gear to help make it more difficult for thieves.
Cumbria Police have said tools, pressure washers and bikes should be kept out of sight in secure locked buildings and that vehicles, quad bikes and trailers, should have their keys taken out.
People are also being asked to look out for suspicious vehicles, people and incidents and try to get registration numbers which should be reported to police on the non-emergency number 101.
The police says it offers security products like shed alarms for £8, drive way alarms for £20 and Smartwater for marking property.
Anyone wanting crime prevention advice is asked to contact 101.
