Thefts from cars on the increase

The RCIPS has issued a warning not to leave valuables in cars, as there has been a spate of thefts and attempted thefts from vehicles that have taken place in the Smith Road and Windsor Park areas over the past few weeks. The police are therefore reminding the public not to leave items like shopping bags, handbags, electronics, money or jewellery where they are visible in a vehicle.

They also warn people not to leave valuables overnight or for extended periods in their cars and suggest people park vehicles in well-lit areas and, if possible, in places with security cameras or security officers on sight. People are urged to lock their cars and to ensure that all doors and windows are properly closed whenever they leave their vehicle. People should not leave vehicles running or leave vehicles with the keys inside unattended, even for a short amount of time.

The RCIPS is investigating these incidents and is encouraging all members of the public to report any such incidents to the police, regardless of whether or not anything was stolen, by calling the George Town Police Station at 949-4222, or your nearest police station.
