Dear Citizen,

We have received a report of vehicle crime. Please read the below information.

Dates / Time: 22:00hrs 29/09/2021 – 08:50hrs 30/09/2021  – Between times stated unknown person/s have approached a parked, secure, unattended Nissan Juke and slashed front rear side tyre and scratched front/rear side doors / bonnet.  No description of offenders.


Don't be a sucker -
Sat Navs, Laptops and even loose change can attract opportunist thieves, so make sure that all valuables are removed from your vehicle before leaving it. Don't just leave them in the glove box - it's often the first place that criminals will look. When removing your sat nav, make sure to wipe away the suction mark left on the windscreen - this is a tell-tale sign to a criminal that a device may be in the vehicle.

Lock it or lose it -
It only takes a thief seconds to enter your car, so whether you are popping into the shops or de-icing your vehicle - always remove your keys. Likewise it is important that you remember to lock your vehicle and activate your alarm or immobiliser if you have one.

Don't park dark -
Criminals love using the cover of darkness, so try to park in well lit, open areas. If you have a driveway or garage, make sure you use it. It's better than leaving your car on the road, it also makes it more difficult for prospective criminals. If you are out then try to find a secure car park, many of which are identified by the 'Park Mark' icon. For more information visit www.parkmark.co.uk.
