4:22pm 23rd December 2013

Police are urging members of the public to keep their mobile phones secure following a spate of thefts from York nightclubs.

On the night of Saturday 21 to Sunday 22 December, police took reports of 10 stolen mobiles from Kuda and Club Salvation.

Officers are asking for members of the public to come forward if they were in any of the clubs on Saturday night and may have information about the thefts. They would also like to hear from anyone who believes they may be a victim of phone theft but have not yet come forward.

Police have issued a reminder to members of the public to keep their valuables safe when they are out for the evening. Don’t leave bags and valuables unattended. It’s easy to forget when you are having a good time, but it’s important to make sure your valuables are with you at all times.

Anyone who has any information about the phone thefts or if they want to report a stolen device, please call North Yorkshire Police on 101, select option 2 and ask for PC Martin Temple. Or email martin.temple@northyorkshire.pnn.police.uk

Many people will receive mobile devices for Christmas on Wednesday and officers are encouraging everyone to take as many security precautions as possible.

Comprehensive security advice is available at www.northyorkshire.police.uk/mobiledevices including advice for parents on child internet safety.
