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.

The vehicles involved were targeted overnight and police say it’s possible that the same offender is travelling extensively and committing offences all in these areas.

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.

“These offences have occurred overnight. Please do not make it easy for them.”

Police have offered the following tips to ensure that you do not become the next victim:

  • Remove all items of value from the vehicle and do not leave anything on display.
  • If you have a garage, ensure that you use it. If not, whenever possible, park your vehicle in well-lit areas. 

Please pass on any information regarding who may be responsible to Nottinghamshire Police via the non emergency number 101. Alternatively, please call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111. Please continue to report suspicious activity.
