RESIDENTS in Loddon are being reminded to keep their vehicles locked and secure after three vehicles were broken into overnight.

Items including IPod's, CD's, cash and Sat Navs were taken from the cars, which were all parked on Elm Close, Loddon.

Inspector James Brown, responsible for the Loddon Safer Neighbourhood Team said: “I would like to remind residents in this area to secure their vehicles, even if only leaving them for a short time, and to remove all valuables when the vehicle is left unattended.

“Opportunist thieves will target insecure vehicles, so by keeping you vehicle secure you can prevent yourself from becoming a victim.”

Norfolk police offer the following crime prevention advice:

Lock all doors and windows and remove keys from the ignition - even if only leaving the vehicle for a short time.

Remove stereos and expensive audio equipment.

Remove Sat Nav equipment and cradle - ensure you wipe any marks off the windscreen

Remove purses, handbags, sunglasses, laptops and any other valuables entirely from the vehicle.

If you witness suspicious activity around vehicles, call the police on 0845 456 4567 or on 999 if a crime is in progress. Alternatively you can email Loddon SNT sntloddon@norfolk.pnn.police.uk or visit www.norfolk.police.uk.
