Happy Easter from South Leicester Police

Alert message sent 15/04/2019 23:04:00

Information sent on behalf of Leicestershire Police

Dear Members of South Leicester.
Hello, hope all is well. Please could I encourage our followers to utilise steering locks for added security to your vehicles especially with those that have keyless entry. We have had a couple of incidents where vehicles were stolen during early hours of the morning and the victim still has the keys of the vehicle. CCTV shows the criminal is using some sort of scanning device and waves a bag near to the premises i.e. door and window. Mercedes AMG vehicles appear to be a favourite so please ensure that you secure your keys in a signal blocker case and fit a steering lock to deter those criminals. Steering locks can be purchased over the internet. I have seen some for under a tenner so definitely worth purchasing for added peace of mind. Steering locks are a good deterrent as they are clearly visible and some have flashing lights so at night they can be seen and the chances of your pride and joy (Vehicle) being stolen would be very slim.
There has been a few incidents in South Wigston and Eyres Monsell of young people riding motorcycles with no helmets and riding dangerously in areas such as parks. We are aware that as the weather does improve there will be further incidents of this and we encourage our followers to continue to call us with intelligence to help us locate where the bikes are kept so we can take the necessary action.
Hope you all have a Happy Easter and if you are going away to ensure that you utilise timer lights, camera door bells and a good visible burglar alarm. If you get on well with your neighbour to also let them know you are away in case there are any issues.
Please see attached video and on behalf of South Leicester Police, we want to wish everyone a Happy and Safe Easter holiday.
Stay Safe
