We are reminding vehicle owners, particularly of Land Rovers, to remain vigilant following two recent thefts in Norton Canes.
At around 12.50pm on Tuesday (7 November), two men stole a red Land Rover Defender (pictured), from outside a home on Church Vale.The vehicle was unlocked and stolen without keys.The men had been following the Land Rover, and waited for the owner to walk away, before stealing it from the side of the road.The car was last seen heading towards the Walsall area.This follows a separate theft of a Range Rover on Church Road. This vehicle had been locked and was stolen without keys by three men at around 10.30am on Wednesday (8 November).We believe the suspects were travelling in a white Fiat Tipo at the time of both thefts.PC Peter Fraser, who is investigating, said: "Vehicle thieves are targeting a number of cars, mostly high-value ones using electronic keys, across the region. “Proactive patrols in hotspot areas are continuing as all ten local policing teams in Staffordshire work together to go after those responsible and protect the belongings of our communities. "We are, therefore, urging owners of all vehicles, but especially Land Rovers and Range Rovers, to remain vigilant and take the necessary steps to minimise the chances of falling victim to thieves."Please lock your cars whenever they are unattended and consider using a combination of safety devices to make vehicles harder to steal."In particular, we are suggesting the following devices to ensure your car's security:• Immobilisers• Peddle locks• Wheel clamps• Steering wheel locks.If you have any information about where this vehicle is please contact 101 quoting 299 of 7 November.
