A WARNING has gone out to drivers after a number of vehicles, garages and sheds were targeted by thieves and vandals in Droitwich within a number of hours.

Between 10pm yesterday and 8.55am today a person entered a garage in Broughton Green and used a sharp interest to scratch the bonnet on a vehicle parked in there. They also broke into a wooden shed and a metal shed and took a hammer drill and damaged a strimmer.

Also in Broughton Green, between 8am yesterday and 8am today, thieves entered an unlocked garage and the vehicle inside, stealing a cricket hat. They placed a jacket on the roof of a vehicle and then tried to get into the shed. They damaged the hasp but could not get in.
