POLICE in Bradwell are urging people to pay extra attention to vehicle security following a theft from a car.

A collection of about 50 CDs were stolen from a green Fiat Punto parked on Redwing Drive.

The theft took place between 9.45pm on Thursday, and 6.30pm Friday from the car, which had not been secured.

Insp Alun Gibbs, of Bradwell Safer Neighbourhood Team, urged motorists to ensure vehicles were always locked - even when left for a few moments on the driveway.

He said: “Valuables left on display in vehicles can also attract attention from thieves. Items such as sat navs or event sat nav mounts should be removed from inside vehicles.”

Motorists are advised to take the following security measures:

Leave vehicles locked and secure at all times - even if unattended for only a minute.

Remove all valuables and personal belongings.

Audio equipment, sat navs, mobile phones, laptops and handbags are particularly sought after. Remove evidence of these from your vehicle when out and about and overnight.
