'Deer' me! Garden ornament thief strikes at Grasby
A garden ornament thief who struck in a village near Caistor stole a distinctive small metal deer.
The iridescent figure went missing from the front garden of a house at Grasby, three miles north-west of the West Lindsey town, in the early hours of Sunday, September 29.
And the garden raid happened just four nights after a heavy concrete bird bath, table, two concrete flower pots and a wheelbarrow were taken from a garden at Swallow seven miles away.
Police believe a number of offenders were involved in that crime because of the weight of the ornaments.

But PCSO Neal Evans of Market Rasen Police revealed that officers were on the trail of the suspects - because the Grasby homeowner has a CCTV security system.
"In the early hours of Sunday morning, September 29, an ornament has been stolen from the front garden of a house in Grasby village," he said.
"The ornament was a small metal deer and the metal is painted with an iridescent paint.
"The thief is a male who entered the garden on foot to take the ornament and then came back into
the garden in search of other ornaments.
"We are currently looking into the CCTV images recovered from the scene.
"Although it is only speculation, the garden seems to have been marked with a white powder on
the hedge line of the property, possibly indicating the location to the returning thief."
Anyone with information about either theft can contact PCSO Evans on 101 quoting incident 132 of October 1.
