Car Key Residential Burglary - There are two types of Car Key Burglary.
Residential burglary where a variety of items are stolen and the vehicle is also taken but in order to escape or transport stolen items.
Residential burglary where location is targeted in order to purely steal a performance vehicle usually associated with that property without causing damage to the vehicle so that it can be exported or re-sold under another identity.
Car Keys should be removed from clear view and taken to bed overnight or placed in a safe or locked space within the property.
Vehicles were possible should be blocked in or placed within the garage so removal is made more difficult and thereby more risk for the offenders.
Steering wheel lock can be placed on the vehicle and lock key kept separate to car keys. Anything that delays vehicle being stolen increases risk to offenders.
Steering locks (£15) are available for purchase from the Police Enquiry Desk.
