Where possible police have looked at forensic evidence, are gathering witness statements and have increased the number of patrols in the village.
Beat Manager PC Ray Bradley said: "The most worrying aspect to these particular offences is that of the 11 reported so far, 10 of the vehicles involved were unlocked at the time!
"Amongst the items stolen have been a laptop, camera, in car DVD Player, sat navs and loose change. Most of the items were left on display, clearly visible to passers-by.
"The offenders are almost certainly opportunists who are finding it far too easy to commit crime in Felton, due to most of the vehicles being insecure.
"Our overriding message to you all is to please ensure that no matter where you live, please lock your car at all times and remove any valuables! Don't give the criminals an easy ride."
The cadets will be out this Saturday hand delivering letters to local residents. The North Somerset Volunteer Police Cadets are local teenagers, determined to make a difference in their community. They are kindly supported by Winford Parish Council.
Anyone with information about these crimes should contact police on 101.
