Police warning

Due to the spate of thefts from parked cars, the police have issued the following press statement:

"The police remind people not to leave any valuables such as handbags, navigation devices and purses in full view in a parked car. This is especially important in the summer, when more potential thieves at night (and also in the daytime) are about. People should think twice about what objects should be left in the car. This is especially true during Schueberfouer. "
