Information sent on behalf of West Yorkshire Police


Dear Citizen

On 22nd August a driver parks his vehicle at the roadside on Southfield Road, BD5 whilst making a food delivery. Engine is left running with the keys in the ignition. Whilst driver is at a house door making the delivery a suspect gets in the car and drives it away. After an area search the car is located abandoned nearby.

Theft of vehicle

* Think about where you park your vehicle? Is it in a safe and well-lit place? If you have a garage at home use it to secure your vehicle in.
* Think about where you keep your car keys at home? Are they on show? Are they within reach of the letterbox? Please ensure your home is secure by locking your door and closing windows.
* If your car has a ‘keyless’ system, keep keys far away from the car to disrupt communication range. Keep the key in a shielded wallet or aluminium tin and use a steering wheel lock for extra protection.
* Is it wise to keep the vehicle running/keys in the ignition when leaving the car for a short period of time?
* Be proactive and keep an eye out for your neighbours.
