Police officers in Bury St Edmunds have been carrying out checks on vehicles parked on the roadside.
It’s all part of Operation Night Owl, which sets out to tackle crime that takes place overnight. Officers have been patrolling urban areas checking every vehicle along a street to see if it was insecure. If the vehicle was insecure, they knocked on owners addresses and gave them words of advice along with the leaflet. Leaflets were also dropped through all letterboxes around vehicle security.
It comes after a rise in nighttime crime.
Two men were caught on CCTV in Ashwell Road early on Wednesday morning trying car doors. They reportedly continued to try the other cars along Ashwell Road.
The pair are described as in late teens, both of slim build, both around 5ft 11 tall and were both wearing trainers and tracksuit bottoms. One male was wearing a black puffer jacket and the second male wearing a grey hoodie and small cross over body bag
There have also been similar reports in the Moreton Hall area of the town.
