Police have released CCTV after car thieves broke into nine cars during a 40 minute crime spree on a Halesowen car park last month.

The men pictured in the CCTV are believed to be responsible for stealing mobile phones and wallets from cars on 22 July left at a car park in Cakemore Road just after 8pm.

A Saab 93 drove onto the car park in full view of the football pitches and drove round for 40 minutes whilst the occupants targeting different cars and then either smashed the windows or forced the locks before stealing valuables.

Security has been increased at the car park since last month’s thefts.

The men seen in the CCTV are described as:
Saab driver − black man, wearing sunglasses, skinny build, blue jeans, white t-shirt with a black logo on the front with white trainers.

PC John Birchill, from Dudley police, said: "The men on the CCTV are wearing distinctive clothing so someone may be able to help us identify who they are.

"They targeted the vehicles at a time when the car park was extremely busy. The car park is in full view of local sports facilities, which we believe were in use at the time of the offences.

"We would encourage motorists to remove all valuables from their vehicles and not leave items on show."

Anyone with information on the thefts or who can identify those in the images is asked to call police on 101 or alternatively contact the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
