VEHICLE owners in Stoke Heath are being warned to be on their guard after access was gained to five cars in one road.

Luckily nothing was taken during the incidents, which happened in The Furrows, between 5am and 5.15am this morning (Wednesday).

One of the residents living in the street was awoken by their dog barking and that disturbed the intruder who fled the scene.

It was then found that a Vauxhall Zafira, a Peugeot estate, an Audi A4, a Hyundai Amica and a Ford Ka had all been targeted, along with another vehicle in nearby Avon Close.

Remarkably, although the cars had all been opened and searched, including the glove compartments, nothing of any value was taken.

It has, however, prompted a warning to drivers to ensure they lock their cars and put their alarms and immobilisers on if they have them.

Police also warn motorists not to leave valuables in their cars.

Any witnesses to the incidents or anyone with any information should call police on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
