Spate of thefts from vehicles in south Norfolk

Police in south Norfolk are urging motorists and homeowners to step up their vehicle security following a spate of thefts in the summer months.

Thieves have targeted cars and vans in the Wymondham, Hethersett and Poringland areas throughout July and August, which has prompted officers to remind drivers to lock and secure their property.

Tools were stolen from a Land Rover in Hardingham Street, Hingham, on July 19 and garden tools were taken from an unlocked Ford pick-up truck in Church Lane, Barford, on the afternoon of July 22.

Documents, CDs and clothing were stolen from an unlocked blue Mini Cooper between 5pm on July 23 and 9am on July 25 at Norwich Road, Wymondham. And at about 1am on August 5, a stereo and Ray-Ban sunglasses were stolen from an unlocked Smart Car in Ryefield Road, Mulbarton.

Inspector James Brown said offenders were taking advantage of lapses in security.
