Wallets, loose change, handbags, laptops, iPods, Sat Navs, sports bags and sunglasses are just some of the items that have been stolen from vehicles across Fenland in the last month.
Along with a list of items that have been taken - that also includes tools, a leaf blower, bank cards and electrical cables - police have issued advice about how local people can protect themselves from theft.
A police spokesman said: "It may sound obvious, but please help us reduce the amount of thefts we're seeing from vehicles by not tempting thieves.
"While we're doing all we can to catch the naughty thieves, please remove your possessions from vehicles whether you deem them to be of value or not.
"Out of sight doesn't always mean out of mind, so empty that boot.
