THERE has been a further break in of a vehicle reported to police in Warndon Villages, following an arrest last week.

A resident of Debdale Avenue has told police that their car was also broken into last week.

The resident, who did not want to be named, said they found both doors of their vehicle ajar on Friday morning (November 20), and realised coins had been stolen from the glove box which had been left open.

The incident follows police arresting a 31-year-old man on suspicion of theft from a motor vehicle last week.

Police Community Support Officer Mike Exon said, since then, the investigation had continued, and no further arrests have been made.

Inspector Al Denny said: “We take these sorts of incidents very seriously and understand the lasting and devastating effect it can have on members of our community.”

Another Warndon Villages resident said CCTV captured footage of a man getting off a BMX bike and trying and failing to open their car door at 5.30am on Friday morning. They added it appeared now to be an issue all over Warndon Villages.

Warndon County Councillor Andy Roberts said there had been a spike in vehicle crime, which had parallels to the first lockdown when there were similar incidents. “Residents need to stay vigilant, and keep working together, and do everything they can to assist police,” Cllr Roberts said. “Share any CCTV you have, and report incidents or suspicious activity to police.”
