In recent weeks residents in the Kingswood and Fishpond areas of Bristol have been targeted by thieves breaking into homes in order to acquire car keys before driving off with the vehicle parked on the drive.
Police are warning residents across Bristol of the consequences when leaving valuables in plain sight as it is suggested that those burgled had left items in easy reach of unsecured doors and windows. There were even 3 incidents where thieves attained car keys through cat flaps.
Fortunately 15 of the 18 stolen vehicles have been recovered and returned to their owners, but this recent spate of burglaries calls for more security measures in place at home.
