Police are urging vehicle owners to be vigilant after the registration plates of a car in Burntwood were cloned recently.
The victim reported just before 10.30am on Saturday (10 September) that the registration plates of a black Kia Optima had been cloned.
The suspected vehicle with the cloned registration plates has since been involved in thefts recently.
Inquiries are ongoing.
Chief Inspector David Wain, of Staffordshire Police, said: “Owners of keyless entry cars are reminded to ensure their vehicles are secured at all times.
“Consider using Faraday bags to store keys which can prevent remote cloning and consider using steering locks on vehicles.
“If you are a victim of keyless vehicle theft, contact Staffordshire Police on Twitter or Facebook directly.
“In an emergency, always dial 999.”
