Police have warned motorists to lock their cars and remove all valuables - no matter whether their vehicles are parked on or off the road.

It follows an incident that occurred at some point between 10:25pm on Tuesday, February 6 and 6.40am on Wednesday, February 7, when an unknown offender entered an unlocked vehicle parked on Oxford Road in Lowestoft.

The offender proceeded to search the glovebox and left items on the front passenger seat. Nothing is believed to have been taken.

Suffolk Constabulary are now appealing for witnesses to the vehicle interference incident and have urged drivers to keep their vehicles secure.

A police spokesman said: “We are urging motorists to lock their cars and remove all valuables, no matter whether you park on or off road.

“Thieves will enter private properties, public car parks and garages to look for insecure vehicles.”

Anyone who witnessed the incident or saw any suspicious behaviour during the relevant times should contact Lowestoft CID on 101, quoting crime reference 7340/19. Alternatively, you can call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
