Police warning after cash stolen from car at hospital

Police have re-issued a warning to motorists about removing valuables from their cars after a theft from a vehicle parked in a disabled space at a Co Armagh hospital.

Cash was stolen from the car which had been parked at Craigavon Area Hospital on Tuesday.

Police said they would remind motorists to ensure their vehicle is locked and all items of value are removed from sight.

Constable McKinney, Craigavon Response, said: “Theft from vehicles is largely opportunistic – if a thief sees something of value in your car they will find a way to get it. You only have to leave your vehicle for a short time for a thief to act. The most important preventative step you can take is to ensure that your vehicle is properly secured when you leave it.

“By taking simple precautions such as locking all windows and doors and storing valuable items in the boot of your car, or removing the face plate from your in-car stereo system you can help ensure that your valuables will be kept safe.”
