Car thefts

Alert message sent 05/08/2019 12:25:00

Information sent on behalf of Leicestershire Police

Good afternoon
I am looking to offer some local reassurance to what seems to be a regional issue regarding the theft of high powered vehicles . Over the last 3 months I saw an increase in the theft of vehicles in Charnwood , in particular around the villages of Quorn , Rothley , Shepshed and Nanpantan . We did some proactive work which resulted in the arrest of some local individuals we suspected of being involved in these offences . The enquiries are ongoing however these youths are now on curfew , which we are actively monitoring , the offences have now reduced . At Charnwood NPA we are continually out patrolling the areas at risk , I understand there has been some suggestion locally that we are not visible . I would like to reassure residents that even I have been out late at night patrolling , unless you are stood at the window you may not see us . We have another pro active operation tomorrow evening running into the early hours , I hope to update you with some further good news.
