“Following the thefts we are asking motorists to not make their vehicle an easy target by taking steps to boost their vehicle security.
“Before leaving it unattended, even for a short space of time, ensure that it is properly locked with the windows up. Ensure that valuables, including satnavs, are removed and that any visible marks from satnav cradles are wiped away.”
