West Mercia Police and the Ross-on-Wye Safer Neighbourhood Team (SNT) have repeatedly issued reminders to car owners about the importance of removing valuable items from sight.

A common link between a number of recent vehicle thefts in Ross-on-Wye is that there had been something of perceivable value on display.

PC Dan Underwood told the Gazette that the most common trigger behind the recent vehicle crime in Ross-on-Wye are people leaving valuables, or items like look like they could be valuable, on display within their cars.

This doesn't just include expensive looking items such as phones and laptops, but also items such as luggage, bags and cases which look like they might contain something of financial value to criminals.

Ross SNT will be holding a property marking event at Screwfix, Ross, on April 6. Where residents can get power tools, mowers and other outdoor items marked clearly with their postcode to help prevent tool theft.

A person was arrested and released on bail in relation to a vehicle crime in Ross-on-Wye, on the evening of March 22.
