Drivers warned to lock vehicles after thieves target area overnight


Drivers in Arnold, Gedling and Burton Joyce are being warned by Nottinghamshire Police to secure their vehicles overnight after a spate of thefts in the area over the past two days.

During these latest offences, small electrical and other items have been stolen.

Inspector Andy Berryman, of Nottinghamshire Police said: “Very often these types of offences are committed by opportunists, who will try numerous vehicle doors until they find one that is open.
