Police are reminding people not to leave valuables in their vehicles when parked, after a number of thefts from vans over the last week.

The incidents took place early in the evening and involved the theft of high-value tools from parked vans.

Two of the incidents happened in Grange Park, Northampton, on Wednesday 30 October. One was from the car park of the Harvester between 6pm and 8pm, and the other from the car park of the Campanile around the same time.

Another incident took place between 5.30pm and 8.30pm from the car park of Club Diana on Finedon Road in Wellingborough on Wednesday 30 October.

Our advice to van owners is never to leave valuables on display and we would recommend that tools are removed from vehicles overnight.

Anyone with information about these incidents should contact Northamptonshire Police on 101 – alternatively, information can be given to Crimestoppers on an anonymous basis by ringing 0800 555 111.
