POLICE are asking members of the Asian community to work with them to prevent gold jewellery thefts during Eid.
The advice comes as part of Operation Julius, Lancashire Constabulary’s crackdown on burglary throughout the county.
Detective Inspector Simon Upton said: “We want those celebrating Eid to have a crime free and happy celebration so we are just asking people to help us by taking any measures they can to keep potential thieves out.
“Many people will wear their gold jewellery throughout the celebrations to attend parties and thieves are aware of that, along with the climbing value of precious metals, especially gold.
“Don’t let a burglar ruin your Eid. Make sure you put your gold away in a secure safe after wearing it and don’t allow your home to become accessible in any way to criminals.”
Tips for keeping any of your property safe at any time of year of include keeping front and back doors locked and windows closed; keeping side gates locked; putting valuables in a secure safe; using a strong lock on sheds, garages and other outbuildings; considering fitting outdoor security lighting and keeping an eye on neighbouring properties.
