Thames Valley Police have released information - via Community Alert - of multiple car thefts in the Lower Earley area. Many of these crimes appear to have been opportunistic, with thieves stealing from unlocked cars. The advice, as always, is to make sure you lock your car, front door (home) and garden sheds.
Police are also warning members of the public to be on the lookout over Diwali, as burglars are once again targeting families likely to have gold on the property and may use Diwali celebrations to target victims.
If you have any information which could assist the police with their enquiries please ring 101 (15p charge) or alternatively you can ring Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111
