Car Key Burglary

Alert message sent 24/04/2019 10:24:00

Information sent on behalf of West Mids Police

Dear Citizen

I'm sorry to say that overnight we have had a Car Key Burglary in Boldmere.
The Offenders got into the house by opening an insecure side gate and snapped the door lock and took the keys to 2 BMW's that had no steering wheel locks.

I know we keep saying this but please consider fitting Anti-snap locks, Steering wheel locks (remembering not to leave the key with the car keys) and also fit locks to your side gate.
Burglars are opportunists looking for the easy option. If your house and car are equipped with Anti theft devices, they are less likely to try and break into your home or try to steal your car.

There is video on social media of Burglars approaching a house, looking at the lock and walking away because the house was fitted with Anti snap locks.

If you wish to have a crime prevention survey conducted by the Vesey Neighbourhood Policing Team, please let us know.

PLEASE talk to your friends & neighbours about the crime prevention advice we give. The more people upgrade their home security in The Vesey Ward, the the safer the Ward will become.
