Car Thief

There has been a small but significant increase in thefts from motor vehicles in our part of Buckinghamshire in recent weeks. Thames Valley Police have issued this reminder ...

If you don't want to lose it, make sure you remove it!

As we move towards the summer months Thames Valley Police is reminding residents to remove property from parked vehicle, overnight and when using rural / beauty spot car parks.

Every year we receive reports of thefts from vehicles, parked up whilst owners make the most of our countryside. In previous years reported thefts have risen as we go in to warmer weather conditions.

Make sure you lock and alarm your vehicle and remember to take all your property with you. Don't be tempted to 'hide' items in glove boxes, boots or other compartments in your car.

Opportunists will look in all these places and it only takes a moment to break the window and have a look. You will then have the inconvenience and expense of reporting it to your insurance company and replacing the items taken.

Also, make sure you are doing the same thing when parking your car outside your house. Lock it, alarm it and remove valuables as opportunists in the past have been known to try a row of car door handles and target any that are unlocked.

The stolen property has included laptops, wallets, iPods, mobile phones and handbags. The advice is simple — if you don't want to lose it, make sure you remove it!

Further crime prevention advice and information can be found on the Thames Valley Police website.
