Thefts From Motor Vehicles

In the past seven days there has been eight incidents of Thefts From Motor Vehicles in the village.  All of these incidents happened overnight.

Nine Riggs Square – 13/14 March,  Lady Augusta Road – 14/15 March,  Johnson Road – 11/12 March, Cedar Avenue -13/14 March, Fielding Road – 7/8 March, Cliffwood Avenue – 11/12 – March, Greengate Lane – 13/14 March and Front Street – 7/8 March.

In the Front Street and Fielding Road incidents the vehicle locks were damaged to gain entry.  All others had no forced entry.  Items were stolen from the vehicles in all incidents.

We strongly recommend that all valuables are removed from vehicles overnight.  We believe it is far better to carry such items to and from the vehicles in a bag than to risk letting thieves get their hands on them.
