Police are investigating the theft of the same car twice – presumably by the same person – within two days in Cherbourg.

About 10:00pm on June 4, thieves entered a house in Bell Street and took a set of car keys.

They then stole a vehicle parked in the carport.

It was located the following day in nearby Fisher Street, but the stolen keys were still missing.

About 7:10pm the next night, police will allege the thief went back to the Bell Street address and took the same car again, using the keys previously stolen.

It was then driven around Cherbourg at speed for about 15 minutes before crashing into the front fence of a house in Barber Street.

The driver then fled on foot.
