‘Thieves are targeting unlocked cars’

Have your say

THIEVES are targeting cars which have been left unlocked in Grantham, say police.

The warning comes after a sat nav was taken from the glove compartment of a car parked in St Helen’s Close, Grantham.

The car was left unlocked by the owners while it was being unloaded.

A police spokesman said: “Officers are warning car owners that it only takes seconds to get in and steal property.

“Cars should be locked even if they are being left unattended for a brief period of time.”

Anyone with any information should call Lincolnshire Police on 0300 111 0300 or the charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
