A WARNING has been issued to motorists by police after two separate thefts from vehicles in Lowestoft.

Police are seeking information after thieves struck in the past couple of days.

The first incident happened between noon and 12.30pm on Wednesday, October 1 someone broke into a blue Fiat parked in an alleyway behind Beresford Road and Raglan Street and stole a satellite navigation system.

A man wearing a dark hooded top and riding a dark red pedal cycle was seen near the vehicle around the time of this break-in and police need to trace him.

The second incident happened between 10.30pm yesterday and 6.45am on Thursday morning. Again a satellite navigation system was stolen - this time from a blue Ford parked in Kingswood Avenue.

Officers are renewing pleas for motorists to remove satellite navigation systems and other valuables from their vehicles when leaving them unattended.

“If you leave it on view it is an open invitation for a thief to break in, while leaving it in the vehicle in the glove compartment could mean it is stolen if a thief breaks in after noticing tell-tale marks where it has been sitting on the dashboard,” a police spokesperson said. “Please remove these systems - and other items such as bags - when you leave the vehicle.”

Anyone with information about either of these thefts should telephone Lowestoft police on 01986 835300.
