7:15am 11th April 2013

Dorset's Police and Crime Commissioner has had his car broken into whilst he was attending a meeting.

Thieves took a Sat-Nav unit after forcing the driver's window that was left slightly open!!!

The car is owned by Dorset Police and PCC Martyn Underhill has described the incident as "ironic".

He was meeting a councillor in Boscombe to talk about community crime when the theft happened on Monday (8th April).

Martyn Underhill said: "I accidentally left my drivers window open by 1 inch. Someone forced the window down and took the sat-nav from the windscreen. The charger unit was connected and snapped off in the socket in the centre consul as they pulled the sat-nav out. No actual entry to the car was gained, it was left locked."
