POLICE are warning islanders to be vigilant against scrap metal thieves after a vinery was targeted twice in under a week.
Detective Inspector Richard Medhurst urged residents and business to be on the look-out and keep property locked away.
It follows the targeting of Willet Vinery in Les Arguilliers Lane, Vale, on two occasions in just six days – most recently by two youths.
‘Our advice is to take whatever measures you can to keep even scrap metal secure,’ he said.
‘What some may consider rubbish, can be considered quite valuable. This is happening and people should be aware that there is the possibility for metal – scrap or otherwise – to be stolen.’
