Thief strikes in area of town prompting a stark warning

Have your say

“LOCK your car” is the warning from police following a spate of thefts from motors in one area of Grantham in one night.

Police believe a single thief is responsible for the thefts from seven unlocked cars in Valley Road, Manchester Way, Gloucester Road and Blackburn Close on Thursday night.

The spate has prompted police to warn motorists, yet again, to lock their cars.

Inspector Phil Taylor said: “It is worrying that so many people have left their cars unlocked with valuable possessions in them. It has made it easy for this thief. If you lock up you drastically reduce your chances of becoming a victim.”

Among the items stolen were sat navs, a mobile phone, laptop, camera and credit card. Information to: 0300 111 0300.
