Officers are reminding drivers to remove all valuables from their vehicles after golf clubs, rugby kit and groceries were stolen during the early hours of Sunday morning (24 September) in Redbourn.
Golf clubs were stolen from a Jaguar parked in Lamb Lane (41/76607/23) and £500 worth of personal belongings, including rugby kit and groceries, were stolen from a Seat Leon parked in Lords Meadow (41/76627/23).
A man was seen trying door handles around 4am at two addresses in Cooper’s Meadow. At one address, the offender was disturbed by a security light and camera. Nothing was stolen from either vehicle (41/76621/23 & 41/76524/23).
A Volkswagen T-Roc was also stolen from an address in Lamb Lane between 12.30am and 12.30pm on Sunday (41/76563/23).
“This is a very unusual series of vehicle crime in Redbourn and we will investigate all reported incidents and up our usual routine patrols,” said Neighbourhood Sergeant Mark Essam. “We are keen to hear from anyone who may have seen anyone acting suspiciously or anyone who saw anything during the early hours of Sunday morning.”
He said: “Please remove all valuables from your vehicles and securely lock your vehicles – lock it or lose it! I’d also recommend investing in a steering lock to deter opportunist thieves from stealing your car.”
