Van owners are being urged to be vigilant after a spate of catalytic converter thefts in the Eastwood area.
Four took place overnight on Thursday (15th January 2015) in Kimberley and Eastwood.
DC Jennie Ellse said: “These thefts took place within a few miles of each other, all on Mercedes Sprinter vans. If you can, park in a garage or secure car park.
“If not try and ensure it is a well lit area. Consider fitting an alarm and always activate it when you leave the van.
“Also, please keep an eye out on your street and report any suspicious activity to us immediately.”
If you have information call Nottinghamshire Police on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
