To protect against auto theft DPD recommend:

- Do not leave any possessions in your vehicle 
- Take your garage door opener out of the vehicle. 
- Close vehicle windows and lock doors.

“If your vehicle was entered and rummaged through, but nothing was stolen, please report this to police, as this could be tied to other thefts in the area,” say DPD “And finally, if you suspect your vehicle has been broken into, please if possible do not touch the vehicle or any contents, and contact police.”

Police are stepping up patrols in the area.
