Two men have been arrested today 8 October 2017 in connection with a recent spate of rural burglaries around the Isle of Axholme. 

In response to this increase in crime we have increased our patrols in the area. We are also actively and proactively investigating all of the offences.

"We want to give reassurance to local residents that we will continue our investigations into such crimes.

"We're also urging those residents to ensure that windows and doors are locked, and that keys to houses and cars are secure as preventative measures.
