The following message is from our Ward Acting Sergeant, Scott Bannister:
“There has been a dramatic rise in Theft from Motor Vehicles in the last month. There is no defined pattern to these; however most appear to be taking place overnight.
I am currently waiting for an Intel request to come back to me with more detail regarding hotspots etc., and I am developing an operation to combat the rise.
I would be grateful if you could pass on a request to all residents to be extra vigilant regarding suspicious vehicles/persons.”
As always: Don’t leave valuable property in motor vehicles; garage your car whenever possible.
