Drivers urged to lock their cars following thefts in the Heanor area

Posted on 9th July 2014

Police are urging motorists to make sure they lock their vehicles as they carry out enquiries into a number of thefts in the Heanor area.

Three cars, which may have been left insecure while parked up overnight, were targeted sometime between Saturday, July 5 and Monday, July 7.

The vehicles had been parked on Old Coppice Side and Claramount Road. Cash, loose change and a wallet were stolen.

PC Sarah Allcock of the Heanor and Loscoe Safer Neighbourhood Policing Team said: “We are reminding residents to make sure they lock their vehicles whenever they leave them unattended and to remove all valuables from view.

“Would-be offenders will look out for easier targets, and may try car doors to see if any have been unlocked. By taking these simple security measures you can really reduce the risk of your vehicle being targeted.”

Anyone with information about the incidents should contact Derbyshire police on 101, or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
