Mum Katrina Hajek calls in police after thieves suspected of stealing garden wall in Sheerness

There is a missing masonry mystery in Sheerness after a woman returned home from holiday to find part of her front wall had disappeared.

Katrina Hajek came back from a week at Butlins with her daughter to discover a section about two metres long and five bricks high at the garden entrance to the home she rents in Kent Road was no longer there.

Her son Anton Hajek, 21, had been staying at the property, and everything was fine when he checked on Saturday, August 23, but the bricks had gone by the following Tuesday.

Mrs Hajek, who is a manager at Ladbrokes in Sheerness, said: “I just couldn’t believe it. They couldn’t say it was an accident because if a car had hit it, the debris would be in the garden but it’s not. The concrete is actually on the road outside.

“I called the police and they couldn’t believe it. I felt so stupid calling up the police and saying to them I would like to report my wall missing.

“I think someone has knocked it down and then used it to concrete their front garden but I’m not sure.”

She does not know how much it is going to cost to replace the wall, as she was waiting for the landlord to pay a visit after she had informed her letting agency.

A spokesman confirmed that the police were investigating the incident.
