Increase in thefts from motor vehicles

Alert message sent 26/08/2021 16:20:00

Information sent on behalf of Devon and Cornwall Police

Police have seen an increase of thefts or attempted thefts from vehicles in the Mid Devon area.

The offences have mainly involved vans and power tools worth thousands of pounds being stolen.  

Similar spikes have been recently seen across our force areas.  Police investigations and enquiries are ongoing to identify the suspects. 

Officers are advising the public not to leave their tools and equipment for prolonged periods in their vans, especially overnight. 

Police would like to hear from anyone who has any information, or has not previously reported a similar offence, please contact the police via or by calling 101.
Further advice on keeping your vehicle safe from thieves can be found on the Devon & Cornwall Police website:
