Haverhill - Theft from motor vehicles

Police officers

Police in Haverhill are appealing for vehicle owners to remain vigilant to opportunistic thieves.

It follows a recent spate in the town when on Monday 11 October into Tuesday 12 October there were three incidents of thefts from motor vehicles that took place in Bailey Close, Henderson Close, Robin Close and Betony Walk. At Betony Walk a Land Rover parked up overnight had had items inside moved with keys and loose change taken, on Henderson Close, a Ford Focus had change totalling around £40 taken  from the vehicle. On Bailey Close, a black Kia Sportage had items taken which were later recovered, whilst on Robin Close a Vauxhall Bora was entered with no force used and a rucksack stolen.

Officers have conducted leaflet drops in the affected areas to remind residents of the importance of vehicle security. Most thefts from cars are opportunist, so officers would remind motorists, where possible, not to leave valuables in the vehicles overnight, if possible remove them from their vehicle and lock all doors when the vehicle is unattended
