Intruders have got into three gardens in Nuthall over the last few days and tried to get their hands on something to steal.
A garden shed was broken into between 6pm on November 7 and 3pm on November 8. Thieves unscrewed the door handle to get in and searched around but did not take anything.
A resident in Assarts Road reported having the locks being broken off their garden gate on November 8. They said someone had been in the garden and one of the slabs was broken.
The following day on November 9, two bikes were stolen from a garden in Phillip Avenue.
