“Theft from motor vehicles remains an issue where items are still being taken from vehicles. We have also received some calls reporting persons trying door handles to vehicles, so there is clearly some opportunist thieves about the area,” said PC Carl Harris.
“Local patrols have been increased, officers have been dedicated to specific areas at specific times to disrupt and catch the offenders and gain some more intelligence around this matter.”
