POLICE in Maghera are asking vehicle owners to take more care of their valuables following an incident recently where a radio was taken from a car.
There are several areas in the town where commuters and others regularly leave their cars parked up for the day. Any valuables left in plain sight are an open invitation to opportunistic criminals. To prevent becoming a victim of this type of crime please bear in mind the following:
Never leave you car unlocked
Never leave valuables in plain sight – lock them in your boot or take them with you
Handbags, sat nav systems, sunglasses and cash will tempt an opportunistic thief
If you see suspicious activity around parked cars please contact police immediately.
