Police urge: Don’t leave your car keys on display

Hello Mr Mark Burton,

Detectives investigating a number of burglaries, in which high value cars were stolen, are appealing to drivers to make sure they store their car keys securely.

Four cars were taken from three addresses in Staffordshire between about 10pm Thursday 13 June and 6 am Friday 14 June. A VW Passat was stolen from a drive in Wombourne, a Range Rover was taken from Shareshill and two cars were stolen, a Mini and an Audi A4, from a house in Stone. In each case the keys to the vehicles were used to drive them away.

Power and garden tools being stored in a shed were also taken during the break in at the house in Shareshill.

DCI Rob Taylor from Staffordshire Police’s CID said: " As car manufacturers have improved car security, thieves have had to adapt their methods. The easiest way of making off with a car is to drive it away, which is why offenders now break in to properties to steal the keys.

"In each of these cases, the keys were used to drive away the vehicles. That’s why we’re reminding owners not to leave their keys in obvious places. They should be kept out of sight and away from doorways and windows."

Make sure your van is locked!

Hello Mr Mark Burton,

Police investigating a number of thefts from commercial vans in the Norton Canes area over the weekend are urging people to be extra vigilant. Tools were stolen from vehicles in seven incidents between Friday 7 and early Monday 10 June at addresses across the area. Officers are issuing safety advice to van owners and drivers.

Cannock Neighbourhood Policing Team Deputy Commander, Sgt Mark Burslem said: "There are a few simple steps van drivers can take to help reduce their risk of being a victim of a van theft. The simplest is to
make sure you always lock it when you’re leaving it, even if you’re only going to pay for fuel. Being mindful of where you park your vehicle can also save you from getting it stolen. If you’re parking up after dark, try to make sure it’s in a well-lit area and don’t leave anything on show as this can prove very temptingto thieves. If you’re locking up for the night, please make sure you keep the keys somewhere safe and where they can’t be seen easily. The safest thing is to take them to bed with you.

"Most importantly, keep an eye out. If you see any suspicious activity please report it to us at once."

When to call 999?

You should always call 999 if:

•you or someone else is in immediate danger

•if the crime is in progress

•you need police help immediately.

This could include:

•someone using violence or threatening violence

•if there is a danger to life

•serious damage is being or could be caused to a property

•a potential criminal has been disturbed or stopped

•a road traffic accident where someone is hurt or a danger is being caused to
other road users.
