Police appeal for information following theft from vehicles in Charlesworth

Posted on 29th July 2014

Police are appealing for information and issuing advice after a number of vehicles were broken into in Charlesworth and Glossop.

Overnight between Sunday, July 27 and Monday, July 28, offenders broke into two vehicles which were parked in a residential car park on Marple Road in Charlesworth.

An Acer laptop and cash were taken from a cream coloured Fiat 500 and Rayban sunglasses were stolen from a white Fiat 500. No damage was caused.  

On the same night, thieves broke into a black coloured Peugeot van that was parked outside a property on Town Lane, Charlesworth. A series of items including Nike trainers, Nike football boots, a blue sports holdall and a first aid kit were taken from within.

Offenders gained entry to black coloured Mercedes that was parked on the driveway of a property on Lake Side in Hadfield.  A Dell laptop with a carrycase and a Swissgear satchel were stolen from the vehicle between 2pm on Friday, July 25 and 6.40am on Monday, July 28.

Police are urging motorists to up their security by ensuring that windows and doors are properly secure and that no valuable items are left on display or in the vehicle where possible. Other advice includes parking in well-lit, overlooked areas and removing any visible marks such as sat nav holder rings to deter a criminal.

Officers are actively encouraging residents to remain vigilant and to report any suspicious activity to them to help to prevent a crime from happening.

Anyone with any information about the incidents is asked to contact Sergeant Phil Booth on 101, the non-emergency number for Derbyshire police.

To report a crime anonymously call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
