Theft From Cars On The Up in Northfield
Warning from local police
The past three days have seen a number of thefts from motor vehicle offences on the ward.
These offences have occurred when the victims have left their vehicles unattended and unlocked and even with doors left wide open!
Property has been left clearly on display and even sat navs left on display with holders left hanging from the car windscreens when owners did remember to take the sat nav itself out of the car.
Northfield officers are doing their upmost with regards to identifying and arresting the suspects responsible and we urge our residents to be more careful when leaving their vehicles unattended making sure no valuables, bags, phones, and especially sat navs are left on display for prying eyes and light fingers.
It is often said to us that people are well within their rights in leaving their vehicle with property on display and unlocked etc and I entirely agree with you, but unfortunately with the world we live in today the consequence is inevitable.
We at Northfields pride ourselves in having the lowest crime figures on the borough and we work hard to maintain that, but what we would appreciate from our residents is a little help to maintain this.
