Local police are urging people in Corby to make sure their vehicles are secure and to remove any valuables or money from display.
Jon Hodgson, Neighbourhood Policing Sergeant said: “There has been a recent increase in thefts from vehicles around Corby. A number of these had been left insecure. The items stolen include change and other small items. Make sure your car is locked and remove any valuables – even change - from display. Don’t leave the keys readily accessible in your property.”
“We have officers patrolling certain areas overnight to prevent and detect further offences.”
