Theft from Van: Norton Canes


Report of a theft from a van received at 8am this morning (15 September) at an address in Church Road, Norton Canes.

Offender/s gained entry to vehicle and stole stereo and CDs.

2PaulPickard-027Chief Inspector Geoff Knight, Commander of Cannock Chase 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 Sat Nav 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 99 of September 15.
