WEST Berkshire residents are being reminded to be on their guard following a spate of thefts from vehicles.

Overnight between the 4th and 5th August, thieves smashed the rear window of a grey Peugeot parked in Queens Road, Newbury and stole a laptop that had been left in the rear passenger footwell.

Then, between 5am and 5.15am on August 5, a purse was stolen from a grey Ford Focus parked in Denmans Drive, Greenham after the passenger side window was smashed.

And a mobile phone left in an Audi parked in Newbury Retail park was stolen between 5.15pm and 6pm. 

Thames Valley Police is asking people to take all valuables with them where possible, or to lock them out of sight.  They also advise that satellite navigation systems should be removed and any suction cup marks should be wiped down.

Anyone witnessing people acting suspiciously around vehicles should contact the 24 hour Police Enquiry Centre on 101 or if a crime is in progress dial 999.
