Staffordshire Police are warning motorists to keep valuables out of sight after a spate of thefts from cars and vans during March.

A total of 15 vehicles have been targeted by criminals attempting to steal property during the month - 50 per cent more than the average monthly total

The offences have mainly taken place overnight at weekends around the county and often valuables had been left on display or the vehicle hadn't been secured.

Officers are asking vehicle owners to take a few minutes each day to check their car or van and reduce the risk of being a victim and to call 101 if they see anything suspicious, or 999 in an emergency.
