Have your say

PROPERTY was stolen from five cars, which were parked in Grantham, on Wednesday night.

Inspector Nigel Storey said: “We have increased our patrols and I would like to reassure the public. However, we still need their help.

“If you spot anyone acting suspiciously around unattended vehicles then please get in touch with us immediately. I also need residents to be careful about locking their vehicles and removing items of value. Opportunist thieves will try car doors, looking for valuables and stealing what is left on show.”

Thieves forced the lock of the first car, a black Peugeot, which was parked in Goldsmith Road, Grantham, between 11.59pm on January 19 and 8.21am on January 20.

A bank card was stolen. (Incident 69)

A folder of paperwork was stolen from an unlocked Renault Megane in Kenilworth Road, Grantham, after 8pm on Wednesday evening. (Incident 85).

Thieves got into a Saab convertible in Tom Childs Close, Grantham, and took sunglasses, a sat nav, a bag and some cash. (Incident 87).

The final incident (219) happened between 8pm on Wednesday evening and 8am the next day. Thieves got into the Rover 45 in Kenilworth Road, Grantham, and stole property, which they abandoned nearby.
