THIEVES have been targeting a number of vehicles – including an ambulance – in Penzance over the past couple of weeks.

Inspector Jean Phillips, from Penzance police, said: "People should take care to lock up their vehicles, remove all items of value and report any suspicious activity."

The recent incidents are:

During the evening of Saturday, March 1, into the early hours of Sunday, March 2, a number of vehicles were entered around the Kings Road and Alverton area.

If you believe you have had a car stereo fascia stolen from this time, call PC Andria Phillips on 101 or come into the station quoting reference number AP/14/499.

Overnight last Tuesday, March 4, a silver Peugeot was broken into at Heamoor and a stopwatch, walkie talkies and sports whistle stolen.

The following night, Wednesday, March 5, thieves broke into an ambulance parked by the side of St John's Hall.

A green Response bag was stolen – some of the items in it were later recovered in Penlee Park.

Between last Saturday evening and Monday, a minibus parked behind the council offices at St Clare was entered and a stereo fascia and fire extinguisher taken.

If you have any information about any of these incidents, call 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.

    Anyone who steals from any emergency agency is the lowest of the low and should be severely punished if caught.
