Theft from Motor Vehicles

Alert message sent 04/10/2020 13:55:00

Information sent on behalf of Hampshire Constabulary

Residents of Kempshott.  Please be aware that overnight on the 1st and 2nd October a male has been seen on CCTV trying to steal from vehicles parked on driveways. Police have received at least five reports of a male trying car door handles and entering unlocked vehicles.
Most offences of theft from vehicle are opportunist. If valuable possessions (e.g. handbags, laptops, sat navs, iPods, mobile phones, cameras) are left on show inside a vehicle, it is much more likely to be targeted by thieves. However, even items of little value, such as shopping bags and clothing, may tempt a potential thief to break into the vehicle to see whether they contain anything worth stealing.
Our advice it to remove valuables from your car – don’t just try to hide them!  When leaving your car, close all windows and lock the door.  After locking your vehicle try your car door to make sure it is actually locked.
Kind regards
PCSO Doherty
