Vehicle Crime

Alert message sent 01/08/2020 14:44:00

Information sent on behalf of West Mids Police


Dear Citizen

There have been 3 more instances in the Hillfield/Monkspath area where cars are being entered with no apparent sign of how this is being done. Between 1:00am and 6:00am on Friday 31st July in HARTWELL CLOSE, WOODPERRY AVENUE and MALTHOUSE MEADOW, an offender has gained access into a Vauxhall Astra, Nissan Juke and a Mazda CX5. The offender has searched the glove boxes and centre console of each vehicle. A small amount of change was taken from the Mazda. Cctv shows that the offender has tried several vehicles in these roads.

Between 10pm on 28th July and 8am on 29th July damage was caused to a Ford Mondeo in HAY LANE. It would appear that a Yankee candle was thrown at the drivers door causing damage near to the door handle. It is not known if this was malicious, a poor attempt at smashing the window, or frustration at not being able to gain access.


PLEASE, ALWAYS check that your fob has done its job and locked the car. Opportunist thieves are out there trying car doors looking for the one that is insecure.

Officers are on active patrols in the area. If you see any suspicious activity, please call Police on 101. If you believe an offence is taking place always call 999.
