Riddings theft

A Christmas well-wisher’s car was stolen while she visited a house in Riddings.

The incident happened at 6.30pm on Thursday December 27 at a property in Golden Valley.

A thief sneaked in through an unlocked kitchen door and stole car keys from a shopping bag.

The occupants of the house heard dogs bark and investigated in time to see an Audi A3 being reversed away from the house and driving away in the direction of Codnor.

The car contained an iPad and jewellery.
