Salisbury Police has issued advice to motorists after two recent incidents where windows were smashed and money stolen from parked cars in residential streets.

Both crimes occurred overnight between Wednesday and Thursday last week (January 5 and 6).

One vehicle was parked in Waters Road and the other in St Clements Way.

In both cases, a window was smashed and money stolen from inside the car.

Police say their enquiries are ongoing, and anyone with information should contact PCSO Geanina Tablet from the Salisbury Area Community Policing Team by calling 101.

The police have issued crime prevention advice following the incidents:

  • Always lock your vehicle, even if you are only leaving it for a short period of time
  • Don’t leave valuable items inside, as they can prove an easy target
  • If possible, park in well-lit, busier areas
  • Make sure Sat Nav mounts or other cables are not on view, and that there are no suction cup marks on windows, as they suggest there is a hidden Sat Nav, iPad or other device, and a thief may break in to find them.
