Police are also reminding motorists to lock their vehicles when they are unattended. Don’t make it easy for thieves - remove all valuables from view.

Lock valuable items in the boot and remove the face plate from your in-car stereo system.

Ensure your vehicle is locked and all windows and sun roofs secure.

Improving your car’s security features such as alarms, prominent VIN number markings, immobilisers and tracking devices can also help protect your vehicle.

It only takes a matter of seconds to break into a car so it is vitally important that the public promptly report any suspicious activity they notice near vehicles or when a car alarm has been activated.

This will help to deter and help us detect those involved in this type of crime.
