Information sent on behalf of Cambridgeshire Constabulary
Thefts from vehicles – we have had a number of these over the last few days (see list below) and they have been occurring in the early hours of the morning. Your mobile phone, coins for the car park, sunglasses, packs of medication or other items that can earn quick cash are irresistible to the opportunist thief. The cost of replacing a window is often much more than that of what is stolen. It goes without saying that wallets, handbags, purses and credit cards should never be left in an unattended vehicle. Leaving sat nav mounts, suction cup marks on windows or cables on view gives it away that you may have left a Sat Nav, smartphone or other device in your car. Whenever you lock your car, make sure the indicators flash and mirrors fold (if you have that functionality) and listen for the clunk of locks. Do not leave anything on display and please remain vigilant.
