Vehicle Crime Alert

Alert message sent 17/04/2020 15:48:00

Information sent on behalf of Leicestershire Police

Good Afternoon Members,
This message is to let you know we still have a spate of vehicles being broken into on the East area of Leicester. Vehicles which are found insecure are being targeted, and also vehicles where valuables can be seen. This message is for you all to help prevent you becoming a victim of vehicle crime but in particular van owners!
Tools and items for delivery these can be targeted by thieves. Please see the attachments of images. The first two images are of vans which were actually left insecure and found on the area. The other two images are of ways which you can park your van to prevent access to the rear by parking it reversed into the driveway and close up to the garage door or wall.
Please be mindful when leaving your vehicle for the night as this is the time these thieves are predominantly active and will target vehicles!
Stay Safe!
