Thames Valley Police 01

A local resident has written to us to warn his neighbours about recent car-related crimes in Haddenham.

According to his report, there were eight thefts or attempted thefts from motor vehicles overnight from Thursday 24 to Friday 25th October.

From speaking to the police it seems that all vehicles, including the respondent's own, were insecure at the time, as there was no evidence of break-ins as such.

The thefts occurred in Churchway, Spicers Yard, Printers Piece and Townside.

The respondent's satnav was stolen from the glove box. He is unsure of what other vehicle owners lost but it seems the suspect(s) did search some boot spaces in addition to the main car areas.

The period during which the crimes were committed appears to have been between 8pm and 8am. It is possible that in Townside the theft was in the morning.

Residents are encouraged to be extra-vigilant, to remove any items of value from their parked vehicle and to ensure that their cars are properly locked.
