Although the number of burglaries has fallen across the city and maybe one of the positives to come out of the Covid-19 situation, unfortunately, there has been some vehicle related crime to pass on as follows:
  • The spare wheel was stolen off af van parked in Oxford Street at around 8pm on 16th May.  The occupants of a black coloured VW car are thought to be responsible. (Inc 223 of 16th May)
  • A box full of power tools was stolen from a van parked in Tuffley Lane sometime between 15th and 18th May.  There was no sign of any forced entry to this van. (Inc 196 of 18th May)

  • Three males were disturbed entering a van parked in Sellers Road, Hardwick at around 2pm on 20th May.  The offenders made off in a brown coloured Renault Espace or Scenic in the direction of Quedgeley. (Inc 226 of 20th May)

Please remember to remove all valuables from sight when you leave your vehicle and keep it locked even if it's for a few moments. Where possible remove valuables from the vehicle altogether.

Please call 101 if you have any information regarding these crimes or saw or heard any unusual activity in the area. When you call please quote incident number shown above.  Alternatively report information on line at

If you see or hear anything suspicious report it straight away to 101 or online and if you believe a crime is being committed then dial 999. You can also report information regarding criminal activity anonymously to Crime Stoppers by ringing 0800 555111.

Although the level of burglaries is lower than this time last year, we must not become complacent and should not be tempted to leave windows and doors open during this pleasant period of warm weather.  Please remain alert.
