Keeping your cars safe from burglars
Following a number of recent burglaries across the force area where cars have been stolen, officers are encouraging people to protect their property and report anything suspicious to police.
Detective Inspector Andy Crawforth said: “Unfortunately we have had a number of reports recently where houses have been broken into and car keys have been stolen. These keys have then been used to steal vehicles from outside, with a number of high powered cars recently reported stolen.
“We appreciate the impact that these crimes can have on people’s lives and I want to offer my reassurance that we are doing everything we can to identify the people responsible and put them before the courts.
“Not only is burglary an incredibly intrusive offence that often causes distress for the victim, people often rely on their cars to go about their daily business, so waking up to find it has been taken can be both shocking and upsetting.
“Which is why we work hard using every tool available to us to take action against those people involved in this type of crime.
“Trained detectives, officers and staff work hard across a number of teams to gather every shred of evidence and piece together the puzzle to help us locate the stolen vehicles and put suspects before the courts.”
