SNT: Vehicle damage and thefts in Lawley and Newdale

The Lawley and Overdale Safer Neighbourhood Team (SNT) are advising residents to be extra vigilant following a series of damage and thefts to vehicles in Lawley and Newdale.

PSCO Mark Bailey has reported that two vehicles, both Volkswagens, in the area have had their windows smashed and entertainment units stolen.

The SNT are asking residents to ensure, where possible, to park their vehicles in garages if they have one. If this is not possible then vehicles should be parked somewhere secure, well lit and ideally covered by CCTV.

Residents can exert further caution by ensuring their vehicles are fitted with alarms that are activated when not in use, especially during the night.

The SNT is urging residents to report any suspicious activity by telephoning 101 or if it is an emergency 999.
