Help catch the fishing thieves

Have your say

THIEVES reeled in a haul of fishing equipment from a shed in Sunderland.

A fishing pole, three fishing rods, a landing net and a rod net were taken some time between Saturday, September 15, and Friday, October 5, from an outhouse in Orr Avenue, Silksworth.

Sunderland West Neighbourhood Inspector, Dave Pickett, said: “We are asking anyone who saw someone acting suspiciously in the area to get in touch on 101 ext 69191.

“We would also advise people to fit quality padlocks to help protect the property inside their sheds.

“Security lighting is an additional deterrent and portable shed alarms can scare off intruders.”
