Information sent on behalf of Bedfordshire Police

Good afternoon,

Between 28/04 and 05/05 we have received 7 Theft From Motor Vehicle reports in Biggleswade. Following that, 3 Interference with Motor Vehicle offences - offenders have gained access but nothing taken.

We are noticing a trend in thefts of money being left in vehicles and items which can easily be sold on such as IPods, Go Pro cameras. We have also seen a rise in number plate thefts - if possible please fit tamper-proof screws into your number plates. As we have advised previously, please ensure all valuables are removed from vehicles before vacating them. If possible, park in a well-lit area or fit a light to your property that is motion activated in an attempt to put thieves off.

4 Burglaries have been reported whereby 1 was a shed with power tools stored inside, all of which have been stolen. 3 were businesses broken into where more power tools and lawn mowers have also been stolen. We find property marking very effective if these items were ever found in the hands of the wrong person. UV marking pens can be purchased online for a small fee and used to write your postcode and house number (or anything you'd prefer) on valuable items which may not be suitable to be carried daily from vehicles/ sheds into properties. Another option is to input serial numbers of these items onto
www.immobilise.com *more information can be found on the website*.

Thank you for taking the time to read this, re-consider your security if you are concerned.
