Thefts From Cars

Home » Newsroom » Thefts From Cars

There has been a slight increase in reports of theft from a motor vehicle, particularly in South Wilmslow. Please take a look at the advice below to help prevent you from becoming a victim of this crime.

Offences can take place during the day or night, whether a vehicle is parked in a driveway, on the street or in a public car park. Typically thieves will smash windows to gain entry. Sometimes they will break door locks or, on older vehicles, prise the door away from the body of the vehicle.

The following is some crime prevention and reduction advice for motorists:

Parking in public

  • Where possible park your car in an attended car park.
  • When leaving your car, please close all windows and lock your car.
  • Don't leave anything on display in your vehicle.
  • Take all your personal possessions with you.
  • Remove sat nav holders and visible sat nav ring marks from windscreens.

When parking at home

  • Where possible, secure your car overnight in your garage.
  • If you don't have a garage, park in a well-lit area.
  • When leaving your car, close all windows and lock your car.
  • Don't leave anything on display in your vehicle.
  • Take all your personal possessions with you.
  • Remove sat nav holders and visible sat nav ring marks from windscreens.
  • Leave the glove box open to show there's nothing inside.
