Police are urging residents to take extra care after a number of thefts from vehicles this week.

“Vehicle owners must ensure that when left unattended even for a short time, they check that they have locked all doors and valuables are removed,” said Sgt Bob Chambers. “An opportunist thief can be in and out of an insecure vehicle in a matter of seconds.”
