Vehicles targeted by thieves
Motorists are being urged not to leave valuables in their vehicles following several thefts in East Cambridgeshire.
Ten vehicles, including six vans, have been broken into or stolen over the past week with thieves targeting sat navs, mobile phones, bags and tools.
Local incidents have taken place in Fordham Road, Newmarket, Martin Close and Mill Corner in Soham and Tothill Road, Green Head Road and Mill Hill in Swaffham Prior.
Officers are urging people not to leave valuables in their vehicles.
Detective Inspector Donna Wass said: “Most thieves are opportunist and are less likely to break into a vehicle if no valuables are on show. Adding extra security to your vehicle could also deter thieves.”
Police also advised parking in well-lit areas, using vehicle storage boxes which bolt to the floor and installing a vehicle alarm or GPS tracker.
