NHW Graveley – Theft from a motor vehicle

In recent days there appears to have been a spate of crimes carried out in nearby villages.  I outline below relevant reports from several recent NHW alerts. 

Please remove valuables from your vehicles and keep them secure.  This recent spate appears to be targetting vans. The Eltisely report references that the offenders made off in a (old style) silver Astra Van.  Should you see a vehicle matching this description if you are able, please make a note of the vehicle registration number, time, occupant descriptions and direction of travel and report immidiately to the police by dialling 101.
