If you're the owner of one of these phones and call your own number, Avondale Tactical Crime Unit might answer.

Police have arrested 17 people after central Auckland motorists were getting robbed when out dining.

"Our intelligence showed there had been an increase in vehicle crime ... with valuable items being stolen out of parked cars while owners dined at nearby restaurants," Sergeant Boycie Nelson of Avondale Tactical Crime Unit said.

The police unit launched Operation Cactus, targeting car crime in Balmoral.

Avondale Tactical Crime Unit recovered a stash of stolen goods including phones, bags and chargers from thieves who targeted restaurant patrons.

Avondale Tactical Crime Unit recovered a stash of stolen goods including phones, bags and chargers from thieves who targeted restaurant patrons.

Police recovered mobile phones, a laptop, jewellery, adaptors and other stolen property.

Operation Cactus lasted for four days, Nelson said.

Apart from the 17 arrests, police made 322 vehicle stops and carried out 81 bail checks.

Police released pictures of the stolen property on Tuesday, urging any victims to phone police on 105 or visit Avondale police station.

Nelson said removing highly valuable items from cars or keeping expensive items hidden made cars less attractive to thieves.

Police data for the year ending in August showed all nationwide theft victimisations increased 3.2 per cent from the year before.

There were 28,513 complaints about theft of car parts or vehicle contents reported in those statistics.
