Police are appealing for information after a series of thefts from cars in Northumberland.

Items including a sat nav were stolen from a Ford Galaxy parked on Inglewood Close in Blyth, between 9.30pm on Saturday, April 11, and 8.53am on Sunday, April 12.

Police received a second report of theft from a BMW on the same street between 3.15pm on Saturday and 10.30am on Sunday. Offenders made off with a Helly Hansen jacket, Puma rucksack and an MP3 player.

On the same dates between 5pm on Saturday and 8.30pm on Sunday, a Ford Fiesta and another BMW parked in the same area were damaged.

Officers believe the four incidents are linked.

Police are appealing for anyone who saw any suspicious or unusual activity in the area overnight between Saturday, April 11, and Sunday, April 12, or with any information about the incidents to contact police on 101.

The appeal comes as part of Operation Soundwave - Northumbria Police’s campaign to target opportunist thieves and burglars across the force - they are also reminding motorists to secure their property.

Make sure cars are locked when left and that anything of value such as sat navs and other electronic equipment are removed from the vehicle, particularly if leaving it overnight. Nothing should be left on view in the vehicle, even if leaving it for a few moments.
