A SPATE of thefts in cars parked in Droitwich streets over the past week has seen thieves make off with thousands of pounds worth of goods.
The first string of thefts took place over night on Thursday, May 8, to Friday, May 9, in Coppice Way in Droitwich.
Five cars were broken into between 1.30am and 2.21am and a range of items were stolen but despite all the owners believing their cars were locked none were damaged on the outside.
The cars included a silver Mercedes, parked on a drive, and a red Vauxhall Astra, left in a cul-de-sac next to the owners house, both of which had nothing taken.
A blue Nissan Note was also targeted and a canon camera worth £150, sat nav valued at £180, Dell Laptop costing £350, energy drinks and a carrier bag were all stolen.
A green Peugeot had a sat nav worth £100 taken from inside it and a red Vauxhall Insignia, parked outside its owners house, had a laptop worth £1,500, laptop bag £80 and a blue Tommy Hillfiger Jacket worth £200 taken.
On the same night also in Coppice Way, between 8pm and 8.16am another vehicle was broken into and a quantity of cash was stolen along with £40 Argos vouchers and a sat nav.
Another theft took place that night in The Firs, in Droitwich, between 5pm and 7am when a car was broken into and a black leather wallet was stolen containing bank cards, National Insurance card and photo driving licence.
On Friday night sometime from 10pm to 7.45am a brick was thrown through the drivers window of a car parked in Winslow Avenue and a sat nav was stolen.
The following evening between 8.30pm and 7.35am an Apple Ipod was stolen from one car parked in Hammond Court and another had a Iphone headphones, £10 in cash and a pair of Ralph Lauren sunglasses taken.
Another Ipod, 14 stainless steel forks in a Waitrose bag and a small amount of change were stolen from a vehicle parked in Salters Court, Droitwich, sometime between 5.30pm and 9am overnight between Tuesday, May 13 and the next morning.
Also in Salters Court between 7pm and 8am on the same night a white Mercedes was broken into and a Gucci purse containing various cards and a quantity of cash, a photo driving licence and a pair of Dolce & Gabbana sunglasses were stolen.
