Car thefts in Amber Valley
Police are reminding residents to keep their valuables out of sight following a number of car thefts in Chesterfield, North Derbyshire, Bolsover and the Amber Valley.
There have been more than 30 thefts from vehicles throughout the area since the start of October, which includes the districts of North East Derbyshire, Bolsover, Chesterfield and Amber Valley.
In Chesterfield a Toyota Hilux parked on Burnbridge Road, Old Whittington was broken into sometime overnight between Sunday, October 7 and Monday, October 8. Tools were stolen.
In Ripley a musical instrument and bags were stolen from a Citroen Dispatch parked on Laurel Avenue sometime overnight between Thursday, October 4 and Friday, October 5.
Community Safety Inspector Russ Dakin said: “It is really important that motorists check that they’ve locked their cars and removed any valuable items such as sat-navs, mobile phones and laptops on display. This can really help reduce the risk of their vehicle being broken into.
“We would also ask that anyone who may have seen anything suspicious, or with information about these incidents or any crime in the area, to contact us.”
Other advice for car owners includes parking in a busy, well-lit area, or in a secure garage and fitting and using car alarms or other security devices such as one way number plate screws.
