Items stolen from cars left unlocked

ITEMS have been stolen from three vehicles left unlocked by their owners in Ashington.

Thieves got into three vehicles in the Hedgerows Mews, Park Villas and Blackdene areas and removed a number of items including a drill and a mobile phone.

Ashington Neighbourhood Inspector Jackie Coleman said: “If you leave anything on show in a car overnight then you’re inviting thieves to help themselves.

“You’re making it easy for them – easier still if you haven’t locked your car.

“Help us to catch these thieves by reporting any suspicious behaviour to police straight away.

“Make it harder for thieves by locking your car and taking anything of value out.”

The raids took place between midnight on Monday, January 17, and 8am on Tuesday, January 18.

Anyone with information should call police on 03456 043043 ext 69191 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.
