Public urged to beware after spate of vehicle break-ins

Police are investigating after a spate of vehicle break-ins and thefts in recent days.

Two reports were received on Sunday, March 17 of incidents on Old Crewe Road, and three reports were received this morning, March 19, of incidents in the Spotts Newlands area.

In each incident, the vehicle’s window was smashed and the interior ransacked. In some of the incidents personal items were taken, including bags, bank cards, and cash.

The RCPS has urged the public to avoid leaving any valuables in their vehicles, especially overnight and where they are visible to passersby. People should also take extra care to park vehicles in well-lit areas with security cameras nearby, if at all possible.
