In light of this incident we would like to offer the following crime prevention advice:

• Ensure your vehicle is locked and secure.

• Don’t leave valuables on show in your vehicle. That old coat on the back seat may be worthless, but a thief won’t know that or that the pockets are empty.

• Don’t leave your wallet or mobile phone in your car even if you’re just nipping somewhere for a few minutes. It only takes a thief seconds!

• Park your car in your garage or on your driveway if possible and try to park your vehicle in a well lit area.

• Don’t leave your keys in your vehicle when you are not in it.

• Activate your alarm and immobiliser if you have one.

• Make use of security devices such as steering locks and other devices.
