A spate of thefts from motor vehicles in villages between Donington and Boston are being dealt with by police.

Parked vehicles in Frampton, Kirton and Sutterton were all unlocked at the time of the thefts, according to police, and no damage was caused to them.

The thefts happened overnight between Thursday and Friday, with the possibility that some of the owners may not have been aware that their vehicles had been left open.

Police have confirmed that some arrests have been made and “a significant amount” of stolen goods have been recovered.

However, some of the items are still to have been accounted for and anyone who has found that their vehicle has been entered should call PC Adam Brown at Boston Police Station on 101, quoting crime number 15000110616.

A Lincolnshire Police spokesman said: “It could be something very minor that has been stolen but could prove significant to the investigation.

“So we are asking people to call us, no matter what is missing, as we also need to trace the owners of some of the more valuable items.”

Meanwhile, police are warning elderly people to be careful who they open their doors to after reports of a gang trying to intimidate people living on their own with threats of violence.

Sgt Caroline Broughton from Lincolnshire Police’s community safety department, said: “A team of offenders using high-end motor vehicles such as Audis and BMWs are targeting the elderly by forcible entry into their homes and threats of violence.

“This has been reported across several counties and while we do not wish to raise the fear of crime, we would ask that people remain vigilant and take some basic crime prevention measures.“
