Defrosting Vehicles

Following suspicious activity in local villages recently, the Aylesbury Vale Neighbourhood Policing Teams are reminding residents not to give opportunist criminals easy access to your vehicle in cold weather.

It is tempting to start your vehicle and leave it unattended while it is defrosting. When it is cold outside it might seem attractive to wait in the warm, maybe while you finish your breakfast, drink your coffee or pick up forgotten items before heading off to work.

This can be the ideal time for thieves to steal your vehicle (which at this point is nicely defrosted). It only takes a moment and the first you might know about it is when you leave for work or the school run and discover your car is gone!

Even if you have locked your car it only takes seconds for someone to break a window and get in. It is also highly unlikely that your insurance company would pay out under these circumstances.

Be on your guard if you pop back into the house. Don't leave doors insecure while you pick up last minute items and don't leave vehicle keys where they could easily be picked up by someone reaching inside the door.

If you see anyone acting suspiciously around parked vehicles please call in through to the police on the 24 hour number 101. If you suspect a crime is actually happening at that moment please dial on 999.
