Alert over car raids

Have your say

CAR thieves have targeted a series of cars where valuables have been left on show.

Over the last few weeks, there has been a string of incidents where thieves have stolen valuables from cars that have been left unlocked and items have been left on display.

Now officers are urging motorists to play their part in locking out thieves.

Neighbourhood Inspector Cheryl Warcup said: “Most of these thieves are opportunist and we want residents to make it even harder for them.

“Removing valuables from parked cars and making sure the car is locked, in particular overnight, could mean the difference between getting broken into and not.”
