“I would like to thank members the public who have assisted us with our enquiries but I would urge residents to remain vigilant. If you see something suspicious in your neighbourhood please report it to police on 101 with as much information as you can including any descriptions of people or vehicles you do not recognise.”
He added: “High visibility patrols will remain in place and I would again urge the public to ensure that their doors and windows are locked at all times including when they are at home. Do not leave valuables in your cars and ensure that your property is secured.
“If you do have a motorcycle, moped or bike and are not using it through the winter please ensure it is properly secured and stored away in a shed or garage that is also locked if possible. If you are using this method of transport regularly then please consider what you can do to improve security such as an alarm or suitable lock or chain.”
