A spokesman from Hampshire Constabulary said: ‘Four were thefts from motor vehicles, and one was of a suspicious person trying a car door handle.

‘Officers are following up these reports, and would ask anyone in these areas with CCTV that may have captured the incidents, or anyone acting suspiciously, to contact the Fareham Neighbourhood Policing team on 101.

‘We take this opportunity to remind people not to leave any valuable items in cars, and to ensure electrical items such as sat navs are hidden out of view.’
