Overnight Police have arrested a local person on suspicion of a number of thefts that we believe have occurred overnight in the south of the island.
Officers are asking residents in Port St Mary, Gansey and Colby to check their vehicles, sheds and outbuildings, and if they discover that items are missing to call police HQ on 631212.
A statement added: ‘We would like to remind residents across the island that although we live and work in a wonderful and safe place, we mustn’t become complacent. Don’t ignore basic safety and security measures. Please make sure that when you leave your car you lock it. Also make sure that any shed or outbuildings are properly secured with locks/padlocks.’
