Theft from Motor Vehicle in Burton


Report of a theft from motor vehicle received at 9.50am today (28 October) at an address in Wyggeston Street, Burton.

Offender/s smashed driver’s side window of a van between 4pm, 27 October, and 5am this morning and stole a Garmen Sat Nav.

Chief Inspector Steve Maskrey, Commander of East Staffs Local Policing Team (LPT), said: “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 147 of October 28.
