Allotment sheds have been targeted in a spate of overnight break-ins by thieves.
Police said at least four allotments near the cemetery off Blackburn Road in Great Harwood were raided between 7pm on Tuesday, September 29 and 8am on Wednesday, September 30.
The unknown offenders made off with a claw hammer, hedge strimmer, three padlocks and a black Titan strimmer worth £69.
Sgt Ian Corbett, of Hyndburn Police, said the thieves used bolt croppers to cut through padlocks and chains to gain access to the allotment sheds.
He said: “Officers have done house to house enquiries and checked CCTV covering that area.
“They have recovered some items which will be preserved for scene of crime officers.”
Anyone with information call police on 101 quoting crime reference number ED1513076.
