POLICE are appealing for information after VW badges were stolen from a number of vehicles in the Sutton Bridge area.
Between Thursday and Saturday car badges were stolen from two vehicles parked in Queen Street and one in St Matthew's Drive in Long Sutton.
Officers are keen to nip this type of offending in the bud and are warning youngsters that they face a criminal record if and when they are caught.
Lincolnshire Police spokesman James Newall said: "We do get spates of this type of offence from time to time as VW badges have always been fairly collectable. This crime does cause the owners of the vehicles considerable inconvenience and cost and officers will be stepping up patrols to catch the offenders.

"Anyone caught will be charged with theft and will face a criminal record, which could seriously jeopardise their future opportunities.
"We are also calling on parents, who suspect their children of this crime, to search their children's bedrooms and to contact us if they find any stolen property."
