Theft From Motor Vehice Reported in Longton

Report of a theft from a motor vehicle received today at 6.30am (2 September), from an address in Gravelly Bank.

Items stolen include a bag, and documentation.

Inspector Phillip Eaton: “Deputy Commander for Stoke-on-Trent South Local Policing Team (LPT), said: “Drivers can take a few simple measures to reduce their chances of becoming a victim of this sort of crime.

“Many criminals often just take advantage if an opportunity appears – if they go past a car and see a mobile phone on the seat or a satnav in its cradle, they’ll break in and take them. If the vehicle looks empty, they are far more likely to leave it alone. By keeping things out of sight, your vehicle may present less of an open invitation to them.”

Anyone with any information is asked to contact Staffordshire Police on 101 quoting incident number 75 of September 2.
