Police are appealing for information and reminding residents to remove valuables from cars following a number of thefts in Grassmoor.
It is after five vehicles parked on driveways have been targeted by thieves in the last week.
Two cars were broken into overnight between Sunday, October 6 and Monday, October 7 on Norfolk Avenue and Durham Avenue.
Three cars were broken into overnight Between Tuesday, October 8 and Wednesday, October 9 on Cornwall Drive and North Wingfield Road.
Items including two sat nav systems, sunglasses and change have been stolen.
Sergeant Aidan Stones, of the local Safer Neighbourhood policing team, said: “Please avoid leaving valuable items inside your vehicle, as the sight of a sat nav, a laptop, a mobile phone or anything of worth can make your car more tempting to a thief.
“Enquiries are being carried out in the local area and increased patrols are being put in place, but please remember to keep your car secure and make it a less vulnerable target.”
Anyone with information about the incidents should contact Derbyshire police on 101, the non emergency number, or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
