Angmering car crimewave prompts police warning

POLICE have warned motorists not to leave valuables in their cars, following a spate of car thefts in Angmering.

Several cars were broken into on the village’s Bramley Green estate between Wednesday night and Yesterday (Thursday) morning, in Sunnyside Close, Hazel Road, Rowan Way and Ashmore Way.

Property stolen included satnavs, wallets and a jacket.

A police spokeswoman urged motorists to lock the doors and close the windows of their vehicles when leaving them, even for the briefest time.

She added: “Do not leave any valuable items in your vehicles. Don’t leave anything on display. Even an old coat or plastic bag can be a tempting target for a thief. Don’t keep valuables or important documents in the glove box.”
