Vehicle Break-ins

Theft from car

There have been a spate of vehicle break-ins, largely due to vehicles being left unlocked by the owner. The offenders are wandering around and trying the handles to cars. vans etc, and get lucky when a door opens. Don't be a victim it only takes a minute to check you have locked your vehicle.


Items are being stolen from the vehicles and as nothing is being broken to gain entry the offender is able to just walk away, without being heard or even noticed.


Overnight patrols continue in the Whittlesey area in relation to the recent series of vehicles being entered. There have been no further reports since the 26th February. Please remain vigilant and keep ensuring doors are being lock.

If you see anyone acting suspicious near parked vehicles or if something seems wrong do not hesitate to call the police on either 999 or 101.
