theft from vans

Alert message sent 11/05/2022 16:47:00

Information sent on behalf of West Mids Police

Dear resident,

There has been a van broken into on brick kiln lane.

Below is some crime prevention advice to help prevent this from happening to you:


• Where possible remove tools, stock and other equipment from the van, especially when leaving it overnight
• Always aim to park in busy, well lit areas and reverse into parking spaces, making the back of your vehicle inaccessible to potential thieves

• Visible security features can be a strong deterrent, so consider steering or handbrake locks, pedal boxes and mesh grilles on load bay windows
• Always use a garage or secure car park if they are available to you
• Check your fob has done its job! Make sure that your vehicle is securely locked, and your alarm is activated, before you walk away.

• Security mark your tools and other high value property. UV pens can be bought from stationery stores and property marking kits can be bought online.
