Police are investigating a series of thefts from vehicles in Hellesdon.

Cars were targeted overnight from Wednesday into Thursday in Wood View Road, Gowing Road and Kinsale Avenue.

Bank cards stolen from one vehicle were later used in fraudulent transactions in Norwich.

Most the vehicles targeted had been left unlocked and officers are urging motorists to ensure cars are left secure overnight, even if parked in a driveway.

It is believed two suspects were involved. They are described as white men, wearing dark clothing, and had pushbikes with them.

Police are asking anyone who believes they’ve been a victim and hasn’t yet reported the theft to do so and to check any CCTV they may have covering the areas mentioned.

Officers are keen to hear from anyone with information and to report any suspicious activity to police on 101.
