Spate ofÂ thefts from cars in Fareham
POLICE are warning people to remain vigilant after a spate of thefts from cars in Fareham over the last week.

Vehicles have largely been targeted on Botley Road, Holly Hill car parkÂ and Upper St. Michael's Grove.Â
Bags, wallets and dash cams have been taken whileÂ in one case onÂ Drift Road lastÂ Friday between 6:30am and 9am a specialised Sirrus bicycle was taken from a vehicle's bike rack. In two other cases registration plates were stolen.
AdviceÂ includes not to leave anything in cars, to remove stereos, not to leave cars unlocked even for a moment or whenÂ onÂ driveways and not to leaveÂ house keys or anythingÂ with your address on inÂ the vehicle. Cops also say to keep doors locked when in stationary traffic and try to park in sign-posted areas.Â
