Villagers have endured a spate of crime in recent weeks, and people with information have been urged to come forward by police.
Avon and Somerset Constabulary has reported a spike in criminal behaviour in Banwell of late.
Officers have witnessed a rise in thefts, vandalism and criminal damage.
Police also tackled reports of antisocial behaviour and traffic offences in February.
February’s beat manager’s report says: “Sadly, there has been a spate of criminal damage, theft of fuel and tools, and graffiti in Banwell over the past few weeks.
