The driver's side window of a VW Passat was smashed on Saturday night.

The same street, which is just off New Hall Lane, was targeted again last night (Saturday, June 16) at around 4am where a number of individuals tried to open the doors on vehicles, including a Yaris, Mercedes, Fiat Punto, and a VW Passat.

The resident said: "The whole street is fed up with the whole thing.

“They targeted six vehicles last night (Saturday, June 16) and smashed one window when they couldn’t get in.

“They’re going to each one looking through them and trying to open the doors.”

The same resident revealed how Saturday night saw the driver's side window of the VW Passat smashed in, with personal documentation and a tape recorder taken from the car before the thieves ran off towards New Hall Lane.
