A police report from today has noted a sharp increase recently in thefts from cars, both locked and unlocked, and in many areas across the North East Lincolnshire area.
Please ensure that you leave nothing visible that could be sold on for a quick drugs fix, and no parking money in centre consoles or side trays, as one report says that a window was smashed for less than 50p.
Compare 50p against the fee for excess on your windscreen or motor policy !!
Cash appears to be the magnet draw as some offences have left items like I Pads, tablets, etc untouched as they could be hard to sell on.
Lock car doors, close all windows, remove items from view – don’t become a cash victim !
