Police are also keen to speak to motorists who may have useful CCTV and dashcam footage.
Motorists are reminded that most thefts from cars are opportunist so lock all doors when the vehicle is unattended.
Do not leave anything on display in your car, thieves can sometimes mistake them for valuables and the damage they can do to the car to get in can be costly.
Take all your belongings with you when you leave the car. If you cannot, then lock them in the boot out of sight.
