PEOPLE in Meltham have been urged to be extra-vigilant after a car crime spree.
Thieves and vandals targeted eight cars in the village on Monday night.
They slashed the wheels on two and stole items from others, including compact disc players, CDs and a couple of bags. They even siphoned petrol from one vehicle.
The victims live on Wessenden Head Road, Sunny Bank Road, Moorland Rise, Mill Moor Road and Matthew Grove.
A police spokesman said: "We would urge people to be extra-vigilant and never leave anything on show in their cars.
"Even if it is an empty bag or an old coat, the thieves may think there is something valuable inside it and break in," the spokesman added.
