Theft from Motor Vehicle Warning

Police in South Norfolk are urging motorists to be vigilant following a number of thefts over the last week.

Several vans have been targeted by thieves who have gained access to the vehicles and then stolen power tools from within.

PC Jim Squires, said: “We are finding no forced entry to the vehicles and are currently investigating how the suspect/s are gaining access. I would like to remind van owners to make sure there vehicles are locked and to remove any valuable tools overnight.

I would also like to give the follow advice on vehicle security:

  • Don’t leave anything on display in your vehicle
  • Take your belongings with you when you leave the vehicle – if you can’t, lock them in the boot before you start your journey
  • Get an alarm installed
  • Consider marking all your valuables that you frequently leave in your vehicle
  • If you have a garage, use it.  If you don’t always try and park in a well-lit open place
  • Always lock your vehicle and garage”

Anyone with information concerning the thefts should contact us on 101 or alternatively call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
