Theft from vehicles

We are seeing an increase vehicle crime across the City West


We have had two incidents in Leen Valley


Items were stolen from a van on Northdown Road, Ainsley Estate. This occurred overnight between the 28th and 29th of January. 

Reference 78_29012024


Items were stolen from a car on the lower part of Aspley Lane (area between Western Boulevard and Nuthall Road). This occurred in the early hours of the morning on the 31st of January. 

Reference 127_31012024


We are keen to hear from anyone who may have any information relating to the theft of these items or that may have been in the area around the time of the incident and heard or seen anything suspicious. Please call us on 101 quoting the reference number or report to us online Home | Nottinghamshire Police

You can also pass on information anonymously to the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.

There are some simple but effective things you can do to help protect your vehicle:

  • Park your car in a garage or driveway if possible, or on a busy, well-lit road.  Choose a ParkMark® accredited public car park wherever possible
  • Never leave anything on display in your car. The cost to repair damage to the vehicle will usually exceed the value of the theft
  • Drivers of some Toyota and Honda vehicles and some 4 x 4’s should install measures to deter theft of catalytic converts e.g  Catloc | Catalytic Convertor Theft Protection 
  • Further security tips and crime prevention advice can be found on the Crime prevention advice | Nottinghamshire Police and on the Neighbourhood Watch website.
