Theft From Motor Vehicles

Alert message sent 01/10/2020 09:52:00

Information sent on behalf of Bedfordshire Police

Good morning,

Over the last couple of days, we have received 2 reports of diesel thefts from HGVs parked up in lay-bys on the A421. So I would like to take the opportunity to encourage you to review your vehicle security, especially with the nights drawing in. The main pointers are:
  • To ensure that vehicles are locked when you leave them
  • Leave no items on show and remove any valuables
  • Park in well-lit areas
  • Utilise CCTV/lighting when parking on your property
I have attached some crime prevention leaflets for you to look through and maybe get some ideas.  

Kind regards

PCSO 6753 James Dancer
