Car thieves strike again

TWO cars in neighbouring streets were broken into during the same night.

The first incident happened in Great Gregorie, Laindon when thieves smashed the window of a Ford causing £100 damage.

Once inside they searched the car before stealing a sat nav worth £70.

At the same time thieves also targeted a Ford parked in nearby Ingaway. They again smashed the window, causing £100 damage, before stealing a Sony stereo worth £50.

The break-ins are part of a continuing spate of vehicle crime to hit the borough as the Echo revealed earlier this week.

The break-ins happened between 5pm on Saturday and 8.10am the next day, can contact PC Marek Jaworski at the Basildon.
