Police have increased patrol in the London Road area of Peterborough after a series of thefts from cars

Peterborough Police posted on Facebook last night, Monday December 18, that they were "out patrolling in response to the recent vehicle crime."

It follows a call by a London Road resident last Friday after a number of cars on Silver Street, just off London Road, were broken into.

A spokesperson for Cambridgeshire Constabulary said: “We received four reports of thefts or attempted thefts from vehicles in Hawksbill Way and Silver Street from 15 to 17 December.

“Items including audio equipment, phone accessories and electrical goods were stolen.

"Officers have been patrolling the area, but no arrests have yet been made.

“We’d like to take this opportunity to remind people to make sure they secure their vehicles and not to keep valuables in them.”
