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:
- 1 'Well-respected' tattoo artist died at home after taking cocaine
- 2 Car flips on to roof in three-vehicle crash in Yarmouth
- 3 CCTV released of Great Yarmouth man whose body part was found on beach
- 4 Free open top bus tours to show off Great Yarmouth's seafront
- 5 Police called to 'altercation' between pupils at Norfolk school
- 6 Yarmouth's wizard hotel to appear on Four in a Bed
- 7 Former Game store earmarked as enterprise hub
- 8 Alcohol seized during police town centre community patrols
- 9 Council defends cost of £70 posy vases amid criticism
- 10 Six ways Yarmouth wants to solve its housing crisis and 'compete with Norwich'
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.
