Alert message sent 21/03/2019 11:28:00

Information sent on behalf of Leicestershire Police

There has been a recent spate of thefts from motor vehicles across Rutland including a number of vehicle registration plates.
Vehicle owners are being urged to follow these simple steps to prevent them from becoming a victim:
  • Leave it on show expect it to go! Always remove valuables from your vehicle
  • Remove sat nav’s including the support cradle and cables. Wipe away any suction pad marks
  • Don’t leave tools in vans overnight
  • Make sure that doors are locked, windows are closed and keys are removed when you leave the car, even if it’s only for a moment
  • On icy mornings, never leave your vehicle unattended with the engine running
  • Park your vehicle in a well-lit spot that is visible to others, or covered by CCTV
  • If you have a garage, use it. Always lock your vehicle and garage
  • Consider fitting a metal cage to your catalytic convertor or have it etched
  • Register any vehicle equipment such as CD players, in-car DVD payers, and sat nav’s, for free with
I also have a large number of Vehicle Number Plate Screw Kits for £1 a set, far cheaper than new number plates.
Protect your vehicle and don’t give thieves an easy ride.
