Spate of criminal damage to vehicles in Cleethorpes

A SPATE of incidents in which cars have been damaged has caused police to ask residents in the Brereton Avenue, Lovett Street and Barcroft Street areas of Cleethorpes to be vigilant.

Since the 15 February local police in the area have been made aware of criminal damage being caused to nine separate vehicles in the space of just four days. The window of all of the vehicles have been smashed but nothing has been stolen and there has been no apparent sign of anyone entering the vehicle.

Local officers are asking people to report anything suspicious to police and to remain vigilant. These incidents have taken place during all times of the day.

This area of Cleethorpes is very residential and people are often known to park on these streets when they attend Blundell Park to watch Grimsby Town, or to visit a number of shops in the area. Police would like to remind people not to leave anything valuable in their vehicles, despite nothing being stolen in these recent incidents, there is still a chance that thieves may target your vehicle if something of value is left on display.

Anyone who may require crime prevention advice is asked to visit www.humberside.police.uk and if you wish to report anything to police you can do so via the non emergency number 101.
