Police are urging members of the public to protect their property and be vigilant following reports of thefts from vehicles in Coleraine.
Sergeant Robinson said: “Police received reports that between 9pm on Tuesday (17th December) and 8am on Wednesday (18th December) nine vehicles had been broken into in the Glenara Woods area and the Castlehill area of Castleroe.
“A number of items have been taken from some of the vehicles, including cash and a laptop.
“Police are keen to speak to anyone who witnessed any suspicious activity in the area, or anyone who may have information which could assist with the investigation.
“We’re keen to remind people never to leave valuables of any kind in unattended vehicles, and please make sure that your vehicle is locked. Please don’t make it easy for the opportunistic thief.
“We fully investigate all reports, and would highlight the need for people to report suspicious activity as soon as possible.
“Information can also be provided to the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111, which is 100% anonymous and gives people the power to speak up and stop crime.”
