Keep car keys out of reach of thieves

Have your say

POLICE are urging residents to ensure their car keys are kept out of the reach of opportunist thieves.

Officers have delivered more than 100 letters advising households how to prevent motorists falling victim to Hanoi-style burglaries where thieves sneak in through unlocked doors and windows to steal car keys before escaping in the vehicle.

Officers have also carried out high visibility patrols to stop and check suspicious vehicles in the area and disrupt known criminals.
