Following these crimes police are reminding owners not to leave valuables in unattended vehicles.
Officers are urging people to remember to lock and check you have locked your car or van and never leave valuable items inside, even if you are just taking your dog for a walk, picking up children from school or popping into a shop.
Do not make it easy for criminals.
Police said good proportion of thefts from vehicles are where someone has left their handbag, mobile phone, cash, vehicle documents, sat nav or tools inside their vehicle.
Police officers and Police Community Support Officers (PCSOs) will be making patrols across the Great Yarmouth area and during the course of these will be keeping an eye out for any vehicles with valuables on view, so the owners can be alerted.
