Theft from vehicles

Alert message sent 12/03/2020 09:35:00

Information sent on behalf of Leicestershire Police

When you leave your vehicle are you making sure all valuables are out of sight?

Are you a taxi driver who leaves a “float” of money in your car?

Don’t make yourself a target for thieves.
There has been an increase recently in the number of thefts from motor vehicles, especially taxis.  It only takes a few minutes for someone to smash a window and grab items that are easy to see.  The cost of repairing the damage is sometimes more than the value of the items stolen.

Satnavs and cash in particular are items which thieves know regularly get left in cars/taxis.

Don’t become a victim.  Keep valuables out of your vehicle at all times and in particular overnight.  Check your car when you leave it to make sure nothing of value is visible.

If you see anyone behaving suspiciously around a vehicle, please report it to us: emergency 999, non-emergency 101 or on-line: – clicking the “report a crime” button.
