Bradwell police warning after Toyota stolen

PUBLISHED: 12:55 10 December 2010

POLICE in Bradwell are urging motorists to ensure vehicles are locked and secure at all times following a theft.

Between 1am and 3am yesterday, thieves broke into and stole an unlocked blue Toyota Hilux pick-up parked in a lay-by on Lapwing Close.

It has the registration N312 GPW.

Police believe the thieves tried the locks on several vehicles in the area after members of the public reported footsteps in the snow around their vehicles.

Police are reminding motorists never to leave vehicles unlocked or leave keys inside the vehicle.

Additional crime prevention advice includes:

Fit an electronic immobiliser- this will prevent the car from starting

Mechanical immobilisers, such as steering wheel locks, are a good alternative to electronic immobilisers

Fit locking wheel nuts

Get an alarm installed

Consider marking all your valuables that you frequently take in your car

Lock all doors and close windows and the sun roof every time you leave your car unattended.
