Buxton residents reminded to remove valuables from their vehicles

Posted on 25th July 2017

We’re reminding residents in Buxton to remove valuables from their vehicles after several were targeted in the town.

One crime happened overnight between Monday, July 10 and Tuesday, July 11 when a Vauxhall Astra was parked in Windsor Park Road.

A thief smashed a window to steal items from inside the car.

We understand that other vehicles were targeted that night, although not all owners have reported it to the police.

Drivers are being reminded to make sure that they remove items including phones, wallets, sat navs and bags from display and to park in garages or well-lit areas where possible.

Witnesses or anyone with information should call PC John Keys on 101, quoting reference 17000293755
