Did you know that it takes under 60 seconds to steal items from your vehicle

Alert message sent 22/02/2019 22:42:00

Information sent on behalf of Leicestershire Police

Dear Members

I have unfortunately seen an increase of Theft from motor Vehicles. It appears too many people are still leaving valuables in their vehicles and not locking up correctly. Please see attached educational video for your information. The video clearly shows how this criminal conveniently takes expensive items from the vehicle. The only thing he does is walks along the street checking car doors to then have the opportunity to search through an insecure vehicle and take your items.

When securing your vehicle insure that when you do lock your vehicle via the key remote control is to 'MANUALLY' check the handle to ensure that it is locked. If you do have a vehicle with keyless entry or with a push start button then please ensure that you get a signal blocker pouch and keep keys away from your main door.

Stay Safe
