These events highlight the need to AVOID leaving laptops and sat navs etc in vehicles – if you do leave these in the vehicle you are inviting criminal attention. Even when such valuables are out of sight, it’s bad enough that your car has been damaged because criminals are breaking in to see if such items are in the vehicle. It’s even worse for you if the criminals strike lucky because you have left them a gift! (Hatchback cars are particularly prone to this type of criminal attention.)
