Thefts from Motor Vehicles in Harby
Leicestershire police have notified NHW that there have recently been two thefts from motor vehicles in Harby.The incidents occurred in the village hall car park and on School Lane. Items taken were mainly tools taken from works vans etc.
The following advice is from the Leicestershire police website:
- Leaving items on display in the car, for example, handbags, jackets, laptops and mobile phones, are an appealing target for thieves. Take them with you, or put them out of view whenever possible. Always remove your car stereo if you can.
Make sure that doors are locked, windows are closed and keys are removed from the ignition when you leave the car even if it’s only for a moment. On icy mornings, never leave your vehicle unattended with the engine running.
All car equipment - whether you can remove it or not - should be permanently marked, in a visible place, with the vehicle’s registration number or another unique identifying number linked to a recognised database. e.g Immobilise
If you have a garage, use it. Always lock your car and garage. Remove satellite navigation devices where possible, including the support cradle and cables. Wipe away any suction pad marks left on the windscreen or dashboard.
