DRIVERS in Droitwich have been warned about leaving valuables on display in cars after 14 vehicles were broken into in the town in a matter of days.

Almost £3,000 worth of items were taken in the raids.

A £100 Apple iPod, 14 stainless steel forks worth £28, a Waitrose bag and £5 in change were stolen from a grey BMW as it was parked in Salters Court between 5.30pm on May 12 and 9am on May 13.

A £130 pair of Ray-Ban sunglasses were stolen from a Ford Fiesta between 12midnight on April 30 and 6pm on May 13.

At Morrisons in Park Way, between 11.30am and 12.15pm on May 13, a Vauxhall Safira was broken into. A Nokia Lumia worth £80 was taken.

Four more thefts from vehicles, which happened between 7pm on May 12 and 8pm on May 13, have been linked by police.

The first in Salters Court saw a £200 Gucci purse, containing cards, £30 cash and a driving licence and Dolce & Gabbana sunglasses worth £150 taken from a Mercedes SLK.

Then in Galton Way, a £100 iPod was stolen from a Volvo 340, and several items were taken from a Volkswagen Polo in Hammond Court, off Galton Way.

They included a £120 pair of Ralph Lauren sunglasses, a set of headphones for an iPhone worth £30 and £10 in cash.

There was also a Nissan Qashqai targeted in Hammond Court, off Galton Way, although nothing was taken on that occasion.

Five cars were targeted in Coppice Way in Droitwich, overnight between May 8 and May 9.

A blue Ford C-Max was broken into between 8.15pm on May 8 and 8.15am on May 9. Cash totalling £70, a sat nav and £40 in Argos vouchers were all taken. The sat nav and vouchers were found in a nearby bush.
