Thefts from vehicles

Alert message sent 06/10/2018 12:52:00

Information sent on behalf of Lincolnshire Police

Unfortunately there are still several reports a week in the rural south area of thefts from vehicles, the majority of these have involved belongs being left in view or vehicle left unattended and unlocked. Currently theft from vehicles is predominantly occurring in the rural south area, rural north at present isn't being similarly targetted.

The rural south area is approximately 192 Sq miles between the 4 corners on the map from Woolsthorpe-by-Belvoir to Newton / Pickwoth to Sewstern / Colsterworth to Edenham Near Bourne.
Reports of thefts have been across the entire area, both during the day and overnight.

Please remove valuables from parked vehicles and where possible park in well lit areas overnight, if parking in an isolated area to enjoy the countryside with friends or dogs, be meticulous in removing any sign of valuables and avoid taking anything that's not needed. Consider a slightly longer walk that means you are able to park in a busier location or near to occupied buildings.
Take note of and report any suspicious people or vehicles via 101.
