SLAITHWAITE was targeted by car thieves just after a two-day police blitz in the area had finished.
About 20 people had been arrested in the Kirklees Focus operation in Slaithwaite, Linthwaite and Marsden on Monday and Tuesday.
But on Tuesday night one car was stolen and several others broken into in the Hill Top area.
The stolen car, a red Ford Sierra registration number J45 WDP, is still missing.
Cars were raided in Churchwood Close, Hill Top Road, Royd Street, Netherend Road and Mona Street.
