Compound target for cable thefts

OVER the past three weeks, a National Grid compound has been targeted by thieves.

Offenders entered the compound at Walesby Hill, Walesby by damaging the fencing to the site.

Several copper earthing wires were stolen from fixed equipment within the compound.

This wire was found some time later at Swinhope, where it had been hidden ready for collection at a later date.

Anyone who knows anything about this theft can call Lincolnshire Police on their new non-emergency number - 101 - to report what they have seen.

The police would also like to hear from residents if they see people acting suspiciously.

As always, details of crimes can also be given anonymously to the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
