Motorists in the Dereham area are making it “too easy” for thieves, according to police.
Car owners have been urged to be more vigilant after a spate of thefts from cars over the past week.
During regular checks of vehicles parked in the area, officers have noticed many items being left in view, especially sat nav systems and their cradles.
A police spokesman said: “Car crime is highly preventable if property isn't left in a vehicle it can't be stolen.
“All motorists should do their bit to make the criminals life as hard as possible by not making it too easy for them, do your bit to reduce crime.”
