Message from Leicestershire Police: Theft of lead roofs from churches

Over the past few days we have seen an increase in rural churches being targeted whereby their lead roofs have been stripped and stolen. Specifically, we have seen offences across areas such as Ashby Magna, Theddingworth, Arnesby and Peatling Parva. I am well aware that other Churches have also been targeted in the past.
We are focusing efforts in order to try and identify those that are committing these offences but we need your help in doing so. We need to ask our local communities to be vigilant towards suspicious behaviour in and around Churches. We know that those wishing to steal the church metal will often have one of more vehicles with them as a way of transporting it away from the scene.
If you see persons or vehicles activing suspiciously please call 101 and report it to the Police so that we can record and act on the information.
We are particularly interested in: More »

· Makes and models of vehicles

· Vehicle registration numbers

· Numbers of people

· Physical descriptions of those people acting suspiciously

· Any noticeable accents from those acting suspiciously.

· Direction of travel

If you witness the lead being stolen, then you must ring 999 so that we can respond as quickly as possible. Please be our eyes and ears in your community so that we can bring this atrocious crime to a stop.
Should you wish to speak to your local officers about this, then you can find their details here:

Thank you for your help.
