“We’ve had evidence that having broken into the house, they are stealing the car keys and then taking the car for a drive, so we would say don’t leave your valuables in your car, certainly don’t leave your valuables in plain site, certainly in the house perhaps don’t leave things in plain view at normal points of entry,” said Detective Superintendent, Peter Lansdown.
Detective Lansdown is also encouraging the use of neighborhood watch programs, if you have any information on these or other crimes call the numbers.947-2200 / 949-4222
