Vehicle Theft & Arrest – Kenilworth

At approximately 0150hrs on Tuesday 17 May 2022 a black Range Rover Sport was stolen from a property at Highland Road, Kenilworth.

Police were informed immediately and spotted the stolen vehicle being driven in Manor Road, Kenilworth. The police vehicle was hit by the stolen vehicle making off towards High Street.

The stolen vehicle crashed and was abandoned nearby causing damage to a wall. A person made off from the vehicle, and was quickly arrested by police. The stolen vehicle has been recovered.

The vehicle was stolen without keys indicating that this was a “keyless vehicle theft”. This means it’s likely the vehicle has been stolen using “Keyless Theft” equipment that intercepts the signal between the vehicle and the vehicles keys.

We advise all owners of vehicles with keyless entry systems to switch off the key signal when the vehicle has been locked if they have such technology. More importantly, a steering lock device and placing the keys in a metal container or metal lined pouch is the most effective way of deterring and preventing these type of thefts.

This is incident 31 of 17 May 2022
