Norfolk Constabulary: Norwich car security warning

14 August 2013

Motorists in Norwich are being urged to make sure vehicles are left locked and secure and that all valuables are removed from display.

The warning comes as police investigate a number of car break-ins in the south of the city last week.

Cars have been targeted in Connaught Road, Unthank Road and Wood Street, with sat navs stolen from two vehicles while a handbag was taken from another.

Officers are urging divers to make sure vehicles are locked when left unattended even for only a few minutes.

Inspector Jon Papworth, from Norwich South, encouraged drivers to remove valuables from display.

He said: It can take as little as 10 seconds for a thief to steal something from a car, so it s worth taking the extra time to hide valuables from view and to make sure windows and doors are locked.

I would also urge anyone who witnesses people acting suspiciously around vehicles, peering into windows or trying door handles to contact police immediately.

Anyone with information concerning any of the above incidents should contact police on 101 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
