Police are urging van owners to take extra care after vehicle thefts were reported.

Over recent weeks three transit vans have been stolen from the Alnwick area. The most recent theft was reported on the morning of December 7, after it was stolen sometime overnight. 

Police are urging people to take simple steps to remove any valuables including tools from vans overnight, to deter opportunist thieves.

If possible to park vehicles preferably in well-lit areas in a position where they are blocked in by others, to make them more difficult to steal.

Remember if you see any suspicious activity near parked vehicles please call police to report it on 101 straightaway.
