Cars targeted by thieves
by David Simister

THIEVES struck twice in the same night when they targeted cars left on a street in Banks and stole valuables from them last week, police have said.

Officers at Lancashire Constabulary said that they were investigating two thefts from vehicles which took place within hours of each other on Chapel Lane last Monday night (January 28).

The first incident saw the thieves take a Navman 470 satnave system, plus some loose change, from a Ford Mondeo which had been parked outside the owner's house. It is believed the car was searched at some point between 6.30pm that night and 7.30am the following morning.

A Renault Megane which had parked on a driveway on the same road was also targeted, with the intruders taking the owner's wallet and its contents, which had been left inside their car. This incident is understood to have taken place between 9.30pm on the night of January 28 and 10am the following morning.

If you have any information about either of these incidents call Crimestoppers on 101 or contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
