Police in Newry have issued advice to motorists following reports of cars being broken into whilst parked in the North Street area of Newry this month.

It is believed four cars were broken into and a driving licence was stolen from one. Nothing was taken from the other three vehicles.



Speaking to Newry Times, a police spokesperson said, “Never leave anything of value in your vehicle, particularly if you leave it in plain sight for all to see. This may prove too tempting for the opportunistic thief. If they see it they will steal it. We all have a responsibility to do our bit to ensure we will not become the next victim of crime.

“If you keep coins in your car to pay for parking, keep them in a closed ashtray or out of sight. All handbags, jackets, wallets, laptops, phones etc should never be left in a vehicle. Keep the inside of your vehicle tidy as an untidy vehicle containing opened mail, plastic bags and so on may attract the curiosity of a thief.



Police continued, “If there is nothing in the glove compartment, leave it open to view. Remove the facia of your sound system if possible. Never keep valuable tools in unattended vehicles.

“I would also appeal to anyone who noticed any suspicious activity around parked cars on North Street, Newry on 4, 12 and 16 of April to contact police at Newry on the non-emergency number 101, quoting reference numbers 1210 04/04/18; 187 12/04/18 and 1045 and 1352 16/04/18.



“Alternatively, information can also be provided to the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111, which is 100% anonymous and gives people the power to speak up and stop crime,” the spokesperson added.
