Rallying call to halt shed thieves
RESIDENTS of Crewkerne and the surrounding villages have been told to batten down the hatches to combat a recent upturn in thefts.
Nine thefts occurred in Merriott overnight last Friday, with outhouses and tools the targets.
Police in Crewkerne have noticed a rise in thefts in the area which in recent weeks have included items being taken from sheds, cars and even a charity collection at St Bartholomew's School.
Headteacher David Carter said the school felt saddened.
