Alert message sent 05/02/2020 15:18:00

Information sent on behalf of Hampshire Constabulary


We have issued crime prevention advice following the theft of a white Mercedes car in Andover.

The vehicle had been parked on the driveway of a house in the St Birstan Gardens area.

It was taken sometime at around 4.05am today (Wednesday 5 February).

No entry was gained to the house and the keys to the vehicle were not stolen.

Anyone with any information should call police on 101, quoting 44200044692.

Advice

We’d like to remind people of the following advice on how to best protect their vehicles:

• Always lock your vehicle, even when filling up or parked on your drive
• Keep the keys out of view at home and away from the front door
• If you have an electronic car key, keep it in a security pouch to prevent it from being scanned by thieves
• Double check your electronic locking – manually check that the doors are locked before walking away
