1:14pm Tuesday 8th October 2013 in News
POLICE are warning motorists to secure vehicles and to hide valuable objects out of sight after several thefts from vehicles.
Four vehicles parked on Salisbury Terrace, Main Street, Garbutt Street and Hackworth Road, in Shildon, were broken into over the last week.
The cars had either been left parked in poorly lit or secluded areas or they had valuable objects on display in them.
The thieves used a heavy object to smash a window before they reached in to grab items. Sat-navs are the most common thing which was stolen.
Anyone with information regarding any of these thefts should contact Shildon Police on 101.
