Night Time person trying car doors

Alert message sent 18/10/2019 11:53:00

Information sent on behalf of Neighbourhood Watch

May I remind everyone yet again to make absolutely sure that their vehicles are securely locked when parked anywhere, especially on home drives or similar. Please don't just assume that the remote will lock everything, please physically check every door handle etc when leaving your vehicle. Also, please do not encourage a casual thief by leaving anything in the vehicle where it can be seen through the windows. Unfortunately, there are persons who visit areas, usually under the cover of darkness and they try each and every door handle. they have even been known to steal loose change from the centre console. Looking at CCTV footage of a recent issue, the thief does not seem at all deterred by security lights coming on, so maybe they just think they will not get caught.

If you are affected by vehicle crime, or have any information concerning recent vehicle crime in your area, do please report it either on 101 or on the police website. Also if you have any CCTV coverage, please arrange to pass this on to the police.
