Drivers are being warned about leaving valuables in their cars after a spike in thefts in Lincoln.

In the last two days, cars in Edwards Drive, Westgate, Kesteven Street, Wragby Road, Chaplin Street and Charles Street West have all been broken into.

Property including sat-navs, mobile phones, iPods, bags, cheques and cash have all been stolen.

All of these cars had property on display and is why they were targeted.

Patrols are being stepped up to target this issue but police are urging drivers to never leave anything valuable in their cars when they are left unattended.

The public is also being asked to report any suspicious activity around cars immediately and to to report anyone suspected of handling stolen goods.

Anyone with any information can call the 101 non-emergency number, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

    What a bunch of idiots,I have no sympathy for them.how many times do people have to be told,just because they coudn't be bothered to hide things in a glove box or lock them in the boot they risk the expense and hassle of not only losing their property but having to have their car windows replaced,Its a hard lesson to learn but I doubt they'll do it again.I'd like to see the demographics of the victims to see if there is any pattern.I never leave anything on display and even lock my doors when I'm getting petrol.
