Police appeal after spate of car thefts

Have your say

DONCASTER Police are urging motorists not to leave keys in the ignition of their vehicles after a number of cars were broken into.

Officers are asking the public, particularly delivery drivers, to be sensible and remove their keys out of the ignition, when they park up.

Detective Inspector Steve Whittaker said: “Over the last few days there has been a slight increase in the number of vehicles stolen after keys were left in the ignition.

“Delivery drivers are targeted the most, as they are more likely to be parking up and leaving their vehicle for a short time while they deliver something. It only takes a minute for a thief to get in the vehicle and drive off before the delivery driver returns. Please be sensible and help us stop these thefts.”
