A number of vehicles have been reported as stolen in Lancashire over the last few days.
Four cars and one motorbike in Burnley, two cars in Accrington and a motorbike in Preston have been taken from outside their owners homes.
One driver, Nadia Lucy from Burnley, had her black Mercedes stolen which had £5,000 worth of DJ equipment inside.
Nadia was supposed to be DJ’ing at an event on July 10 but could not do so due to her car and decks being stolen the previous night.
She said: “My cars been nicked with my decks in and everything.
“I’m absolutely gutted because its got all decks in and I was supoosed to be DJ’ing a really special event today.
“Four cars including a Range Rover Evoque were taken in Burnley yesterday too and two cars in Accrington so be on watch.
“I had a message too from someone whose neighbours had scared off a man trying to get into his car. Be on high alert.
“If anyone hears of some decks CDJ2000S NXS2 and DJM 900 NXS2 Mixer for sale let me know please I paid five grand for them.”
Yesterday (July 13) Mark Bimson from Preston shared a post on Facebook alongside a picture of his Honda motorbike stating that it had gone missing.
His bike was stolen at 3:13am by two males who were caught on CCTV.
“I’m not happy. I’ve just come out of my house to go to hospital and the garage door was wide open and my bike has gone,” he said.
Later that evening Mark’s bike was found as it had been abandoned.
“It would appear my bike has been found safe and well abandoned in Moor Nook. I am in hospital so I can’t retrieve it till I get out hopefully tomorrow,” he said.
A motorcyclist in Burnley also had his bike stolen on July 13 from Ebor Street around 8:30pm.
The owner, Anthony Hughes, said it was later found to have been dragged up and over hospital bumps and located towards Casterton Avenue.
Lancashire Constabulary has been contacted for a comment.
