Police warn against 'opportunist' vehicle crime
4:00pm Wednesday 23rd January 2013 in News
CREWE police have issued another ‘lock your vehicles’ warning after 18 vehicles were broken into.
Nine of the vehicles targeted during the three weeks were parked in Wistaston – all of which were left unlocked.
Sgt Andy McGillian said: "They are a clear case of an opportunist thief trying door handles in the hope of striking lucky.
"Sadly in Crewe, there appears to have been rich pickings as they found four cars unlocked and were able to take advantage.
"While we continue to crackdown on car thieves, we urge people to lock their cars up and report to police anyone acting suspiciously in their street.
"We also advise people never to leave cash or valuables in a parked vehicle and certainly not to leave anything of value on show."
Anyone with any information about vehicle crime is urged to contact officers from Congleton police on 101 or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
