South Harrow residents were left concerned following two overnight burglaries on September 12.
The incidents occurred on Warwick Avenue and Walton Avenue, where an unidentified male suspect broke into sheds and made off with power tools.
In both cases, the suspect accessed the properties’ rear and forced entry into the sheds.

Met Police also provided insights into the most commonly stolen items from sheds, which include bikes, lawnmowers, sports equipment, power tools, and garden tools.
Taking preventive measures can significantly reduce the risk of such incidents.
