Police are warning motorists to lock their cars after thieves targeted vehicles in Welwyn Garden City.

Thieves struck overnight on Tuesday.

A TomTom sat nav was stolen from a silver Renault in Broadwater Crescent. It’s unknown how the offender got into the vehicle.

A TomTom was also stolen from a brown Vauxhall in Marsden Green. Again, it is not known how the offender got into the vehicle.

Police have issued the following advice -

-It might sound obvious, but make sure you lock the doors and shut the windows and sunroof whenever you leave your vehicle unattended.

-Remove your Sat Nav and its holder, and wipe away any suction marks as these could suggest to a potential thief that a Sat Nav is stored in your vehicle.

-Never leave any valuables in your vehicle - not even in the glove-box or boot - and keep ALL other possessions out of sight.

Use an approved steering lock or gear clamp, and remember to set your immobiliser and alarm if you have them.

-Register your stereo, laptop, Sat Nav and any other property on the free online property database www.immobilise.com. It only takes a few minutes and could help police trace your property if it’s lost or stolen.
