Thefts on the moor

I have had it reported to me that one of our members late last year had his wallet stolen out of his car whilst unloading his gear to go flying. On the day in question a person was seen hanging about the car park, which is not really unusual as dog walkers will quite often stop to watch the planes fly, but in this case he had no dog and did not look like a regular walker. After tell this tail to another regular user of the Moor it would appear there has been concerns about two characters who have been seen around the moor on days when car have been broken into at the St Ives end car park. Please can I ask you to not only keep your vehicle locked but also to report an strange incidents to one of our committee members and report it to police on 101.
