Thames Valley Police is asking caravan owners to check the security of their vans following recent caravan thefts in the Aylesbury Vale area.
Two caravans were stolen from a secure compound in the Granborough area, overnight on Thursday 23rd to Friday 24th April. One of the vans was fitted with a tracker and was later located in Essex area.
PC Mark Hodgson from Aylesbury is investigating these two thefts. He said "I would encourage caravan owners to review their own security arrangements and consider fitting their vehicle with a tracker.
"If the worst happens and your van is stolen, having a tracker fitted helps us to find it, which means that the vehicle can be returned to you."
If you own a caravan please visit the Thames Valley Police site for crime prevention advice, that will help to protect your property.
If anyone in the Granborough area saw anyone or any vehicle acting suspiciously in the area that night please call PC Hodgson on the 24 hour Police Enquiry Centre number 101.
If you don't want to speak to the police or give your details you can contact the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111, or report it online. No personal details will be taken, information is not traced or recorded and you will not have to go to court.
