POLICE have issued a warning following the recent theft of similar vehicles in the Marshland area.

Two Vauxhall Brava pick-up trucks have been stolen overnight from driveways in as many weeks.

The most recent theft happened overnight between Thursday March 4 and Friday March 5, when thieves forced entry through gates to steal a white Vauxhall Brava pick-up parked securely in a driveway in Northgate Way, Terrington St Clement.

Previoiusly, a blue vehicle was stolen overnight between Thursday February 25 and 26 from a driveway in Station Road South, Walpole St Andrew.

Sgt Sam Pontin from Terrington Safer Neighbourhood Team said: "It's possible this particular vehicle make is being targeted. Although both these vehicles were left locked and secure, we are reminding all motorists to ensure they make their vehicle less appealing to opportunist thieves by using all necessary security measures available such as gates, security lights, steering wheel locks and by removing all valuables from display."
