Inspector Emma Garside from Thames Valley Police has issued a warning to residents of the Waddesdon and Haddenham neighbourhoods, following a spate of vehicle crimes.

Over recent weeks, 15 vehicles have been broken into in Chearsley, Long Crendon and Oving areas. Offences have been occurring over night and are believed to be the work of opportunist thieves, with no particular vehicle being targeted. All of the attacked vehicles had been left insecure and various items stolen including sat navs, cash, clothing, glasses and a brief case.

Suspects are believed to be coming to South Bucks villages from Oxfordshire and some of the stolen property has been recovered in a vehicle in Oxford.

In addition, during recent cold weather conditions, two vehicles have been stolen from Brill and Chilton. Owners had left the vehicles running to defrost the windscreens and warm the cars up but thieves took advantage and stole the insecure cars.

Motorists are advised never to leave a car unattended in these circumstances. If a vehicle is stolen in this way it is unlikely that your insurance company will pay for the loss of the vehicle.
