Theft from Vehicles Whittington

Alert message sent 24/01/2020 13:23:00

Information sent on behalf of Staffordshire Police


Good afternoon Smart Alert users!

Unfortunately last night, during the hours of darkness two vehicles (vans) were targeted and broken into. One van from Fisherwick Rd and the other from Midddleton Rd.
Offenders gained entry to both vehicles by drilling a hole near to a door handle. Tools were taken from one vehicle and 2x cycles were taken from the other.

Theft from vans has been very popular over the past few weeks and I urge van owners to consider extra security measures.

I recently visited one victim who has installed external sensors to their driveway, when these sensors are activated,lights from within the house are illuminated. This is an extremely good idea as this will give the impression that persons within the house are awake and may deter offenders targeting the vehicles/property.
