A spate of nine thefts and attempted thefts happened in Playford overnight on Thursday, June 12 and Friday, June 13.

A Peugeot and a Ford Galaxy were both broken into and searched whilst parked on a driveway and at the same house the garden shed was broken into and a bicycle was taken from the shed and left in the garden.

A garage and an annex were broken into causing damage to two doors, and a second garage was broken into in Church Lane, although nothing appears to have been stolen from either property.

A spade was stolen after someone entered and searched an outbuilding belonging to a property in Brook Lane, and a second spade that was not owned by the residents was discovered in the outbuilding.

A Samsung mobile phone was stolen after a Renault Clio was entered and searched, and outbuildings at the property were also entered although nothing appears to have been stolen.

A silver and white iPad mini in a pink fuchsia flip case was stolen after someone broke into the property through the patio door.

Someone attempted to break into a garden shed at a property in The Courts, however it is thought that they were disturbed when the alarmed padlock on the shed sounded.

And an outbuilding was broken into causing damage to the door although nothing was taken at a property in Church Lane.
