Police are urging motorists to remove valuables from their vehicles after a car was broken into in Bradwell last weekend.
Overnight between Saturday, October 18 and Sunday, October 20, thieves attempted to gain entry into a vehicle on Church Street, Bradwell.
The criminals tried to break into the red coloured Peugeot causing the window to smash.
PCSO Anthony Boswell from the Hathersage Safer Neighbourhood Team said: “We would like to remind the public to remove any valuables from their vehicles and to leave nothing, including small change, on display.
“Taking simple steps such as activating the alarm system on your car, removing any valuables and keeping items out of sight will make it less vulnerable for thieves to target.
“Enquiries are being made in the area and patrols are being increased, but we would also like to urge residents to remain vigilant and take the extra steps to help deter criminals.”
Anyone with information about the incident should contact Derbyshire police on 101, the non-emergency number, or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
