Police are reminding people to ensure their sheds and out buildings are locked and secure after a spate of burglaries.
The advice comes after a number of buildings were broken into around Pulham in south Norfolk and power tools were stolen.
Pc Jim Squires said: 'I would advise anyone leaving any items of value in sheds or garages to get their property marked, whether it's electronically or through DNA technology, which involves microdots with unique reference numbers which link to your house and can be detected using a UV light.
'Most shed breaks are carried out by opportunist thieves, therefore please ensure that you lock and secure your shed and garage.
'In the meantime, I would urge residents to be vigilant and report any suspicious behaviour to police on 101 or call 999 if you believe a crime is in progress.'
