car break in
Police are once again warning drivers not to leave valuables in their cars – even during the day.

A spate of car crime has been reported in several locations, especially local beauty spots in the south of Tenerife.

The gang of car thieves are very organised and have the audacity to break into cars in broad daylight by smashing windows and grabbing valuables. It is all over in a matter of seconds.

Wallets and handbags are often hidden under seats but can still be spotted from the outside. Police advice is to take valuables with you. If you can’t take your possessions with you whilst out sight-seeing or visiting, then lock them away in the boot of your car or leave them at home in the first place.
