Police appeal after series of car thefts in Lincoln over weekend

Lincolnshire Police are appealing for witnesses and information after a spate of thefts from cars in streets around Carholme Road.

Four incidents were reported to the force over the weekend and are all believed to have taken place sometime between the afternoon of Saturday, December 19 and the morning of Sunday, December 20.

Two took place on Angelica Road where a silver Ford Kuga and a silver Volkswagen Passat were targeted in separate incidents.

Two iPods were stolen from the Kuga, and at this stage it is unclear what was stolen from the Passat.

On the same day, a red Toyota Yaris parked on Milfoil Avenue was reported to have been broken into. Details are still being gathered as to what might have been stolen.

A green Nissan convertible on Iris Crescent was also targeted. Nothing was stolen but the contents of the vehicle were strewn about nearby.

A spokesperson for Lincolnshire Police said: “This is a timely opportunity to remind people of vehicle security.

“Please ensure that you vehicle is locked and the windows and closed and secure when you are away from it for any period of time.

“If possible, park it in a well-lit spot and make sure any valuables are removed or kept out of sight.

“If you have any information about any of the above incidents, or saw anyone suspicious in the area at the time, please call us on the non-emergency number 101 quoting any of the above incident numbers.

“Alternatively contact the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.”
