Do not make your car cosy for criminals

Alert message sent 12/02/2019 09:54:00

Information sent on behalf of West Mids Police

Good morning,

As the frosty mornings return again please remember

Every winter, cars are stolen from driveways across the west midlands because owners leave them unattended, keys in the ignition, while they warm up and the windscreens defrost.
Some victims nip inside for just a few seconds to collect a bag or finish the last mouthful of coffee but that's all the time an opportunist thief needs.
Insurance companies may not pay out for cars stolen in this way, and if your car keys are taken as well, you’re making your home vulnerable.
Clear windscreens with de-icer and a scraper and sit in the vehicle while the heater de-mists the inside windscreen.

Let’s freeze out the car thieves .
