Don't give thieves an easy ride
Police are urging owners of high performance
vehicles to be vigilant after a spate of car key burglaries in the
Flintshire and Wrexham areas.
Houses with cars such as BMWs, Audis, VW Golfs
and Mazda on the drive have been broken into, the car keys taken
and the vehicle stolen.
Chief Inspector David Roome, said; "We have
seen a number of these crimes in the area recently. People
need to be aware and do what they can to protect themselves from
becoming a victim. If you have a high performance car, think about
where you leave it overnight. If you have a garage use it, if you
can park it out of sight at the back of the house do so. Drive it
onto the parking area, don't reverse it in ready to go. Make sure
you keep the car keys out of sight and if possible in a secure
place, don't make it easy for car thieves."
Householder are also being urged to make sure
that their property is secure. Make sure doors and windows are
Chief Inspector Roome said:"We're doing all we
can to bring these offenders to justice, but car owners and
householders also have a part to play in making sure that their
property is as secure as possible."
