Rural car theft – Aylesbury Vale
Friday 04 January 2013, 11:25am
Police in Aylesbury Vale are urging residents in rural areas to take simple precautions to prevent car crime.
Recently a number of cars have been broken into in the Bedgrove and Broughton areas in Aylesbury Vale and items such as mobile phones, wallets, purses and handbags have been taken.
Sgt Jim Forrest from Aylesbury police station said: “I urge car-owners not to leave valuable items on show in their cars as this makes your car an easy target for thieves.
“Even placing items such as the sat nav in your glove compartment, or leaving loose change in a tray in your car, can be an attraction to a thief. The advice is not to leave anything on display and make sure your car is empty of items such as iPads, phones, wallets, purses and handbags.”
If you have information about a crime or see or hear anything in relation to a crime, please contact Sgt Forrest on 101.
If you don't want to speak directly to the police you can contact the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 or online at crimestoppers-uk.org. No personal details are taken, information is not traced or recorded and you will not go to court.
