Police in Yarmouth are urging motorists to lock their vehicles and remove all valuables when leaving them parked after several recent thefts from cars in the area.

Most recently, a car parked in Yarmouth Road in Caister-on-Sea was broken into between 8.30pm on Friday, November 9 and 3pm Monday, November 12, and a white iPhone 4 stolen.

There have been about a dozen thefts from vehicles across the borough since the start of the month, with items including rucksacks, satellite navigation systems, cash, an iPod and wallet containing bank cards among those stolen.

Police are urging people not to leave valuables in their car vehicle even if only leaving it unattended for a short time, and are asking anyone who may notice any suspicious activity near vehicles to call 999 immediately.

Anyone who saw the Yarmouth Road theft or has any information about who took the phone are asked to call PC Craig Johnstone on 101.

  • When the culprits get caught all they get is a slap on the wrist maybe if the received 12 months jail plus pay damage costs to the car owners for damage to the car and replace the stolen items it might just pay off
