Residents in part of Rotherham are being urged to make sure their vehicles are kept secure after a rise in crime.
There has been six reports of vehicle crime on the Lion's Lodge Estate in Brampton Bierlow this month.
Officers from the Rotherham North Neighbourhood Policing Team are now urging motorists to be vigilant.
