Over the past two nights officers have received several reports of vehicles being entered, some by force, in what is presumed to be the early hours of the morning.

Waterlooville PSCO Lee Haywood said: ‘The offences have occurred over a relatively wide area, from the new Redrow Estate on London Road, to Stakes Road, Stakes Hill Road, and other minor roads in between.

‘We anticipate there will be many of these incidents that have gone unreported to the police.
