We are continuing to receive significant numbers of reports of thefts from motor vehicles in the St Neots area, and in particular in the Eynesbury and Eaton Socon Wards.
Thieves are stealing tools from commercial vehicles and also personal effects from private cars. Please help us to help members of the public reduce the chance of becoming victim to this type of crime by removing all valuable tools and personal effects from vehicles and report any suspicious activity to police on 101 / 999 if a crime is in progress.
Whilst I appreciate that having to remove tools from your vehicle is inconvenient, it is often not possible to secure motor vehicles to a high enough standard to minimise the risk of theft to an acceptable level.
Patrols are being maintained in the hotspot areas wherever possible.
