A rash of vehicle crimes has been reported in Croxley recently, from vehicles being broken into to hit-and-runs on parked cars.
On Thursday, January 12, several roads were targeted by thieves breaking into cars on Claremont Crescent, Malvern Way, Springfield Close, Yorke Road and Barton Way.
In response to these incidents, Herts Police have reminded residents to be vigilant, making sure cars are locked, not leaving valuables inside vehicles and being aware of where keys are kept.
Chief Inspector Andrew Palfreyman said: “I would ask that anyone who lives on the roads mentioned as being targeted to please double check their vehicles.
“If you have any information which you think may assist our investigation, you can report it online or call the non-emergency number 101.”
Elsewhere, on Watford Road, resident Meenesh Mistry is trying to find out who hit his parked car at around 5.26 am on December 21, and left it in a terrible state of damage.
Meenesh said: “Unfortunately my car is a write-off and I need to find the driver responsible for this.
“We have footage of the incident through my neighbour’s doorbell, and we also know the car came up Scotts Hill first.
“After the crash drove up New Road, Barton Way and then stopped on Winchester Way to check his car.”
Speaking about how the incident has affected him, Meenesh said: “If we don’t find the guy who did it, I’m going to have to pay a lot of money and my insurance will go up.”
Anyone with any information on the incident is also advised to contact the police.
