Thefts of Stop Start vehicles

Alert message sent 08/05/2019 15:13:00

Information sent on behalf of Cheshire Constabulary

There has been a recent spate of vehicles broken in to/stolen, from the Upton Rocks area of the town. The vehicles affected are those with Stop/Start technology. Their security systems are being breached, allowing thieves to select vulnerable vehicles. PLEASE make sure you do all you can to keep your vehicles safe. Keep the keys as far away from the vehicle as possible when not in use/parked up. Look at purchasing a Faraday Bag (These are metal lined bags that reduce or stop the unauthorised access to the cars electronic systems) or a sturdy steering lock. Try to "block" your vehicle in if possible. These are ways in which to deter any potential thief from looking at stealing or braking in to your vehicle.
