Police appeal after car thefts from Ruskington.

Officers are potentially linking three recent incidents that happened on Thursday and Friday and are appealing for information to assist with inquiries.

Then, between 8.30am and 5pm on Thursday burglars have broken into a property on Station Road in Ruskington, forcing the front door.

This was Incident 349 of 27/05/2021.

Then between 9pm on Thursday and 10.30am on Friday intruders have entered another address in Ruskington, on Winchelsea Road, via the rear door. This time they made off with a white Audi RS3 Quattro. Again, police believe fake number plates were used. (Incident 123 of 28/05/2021)
