Police are warning motorists to be vigilant following a spate of thefts from insecure vehicles.
Officers are advising drivers to ensure their vehicles are locked when they are left unattended.
The appeal comes after thieves targeted a number of insecure vehicles in recent weeks, stealing valuable items from within.
In the early hours of the morning on Monday November 2, offenders stole a laptop from a vehicle on Morrell Drive in Belper.
Similar incidents have also been reported recently in the surrounding areas, including Duffield.
