Drivers are warned to remove valuables from their vehicles
Motorists have been warned to keep valuables out of sight after a spate of thefts from cars in Leicestershire.
Officers said there had been 39 reported thefts from vehicles in the Spinney Hill Park area of the city over the past 17 days.
Most of the items taken were satellite navigation systems, laptops, purses and car stereos.
Anyone who has witnessed any of the vehicle crimes or has further information is urged to contact police.
Sgt Emma Matts said: "We are urging motorists not to give thieves a reason to break in by leaving valuable items on show.
"Items like stereos and sat navs are very attractive to thieves and can be snatched from a car within seconds."
