Gardener scares off Shildon allotment burglars with sweeping brush
4:14pm Monday 9th September 2013 in News
BURGLARS seeking to break into an allotment shed were scared away by the plot’s owner brandishing a sweeping bush.
The crooks were spotted as they tried to enter a shed on the Redworth Road allotments, in Shildon, County Durham at about 4am on September 4.
The two burglars ran away from the scene, crossing barbed wire, when they were confronted by the gardener.
The burglars are thought to be male and were wearing dark hooded tops. It is highly likely that these persons will have some form of injury as a result of this incident.
Anyone with information should contact Shildon Police on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800-555111.
