Thefts from Vehicles – Kenilworth

LEAVING ITEMS IN CARS is causing vehicles to be damaged and property to be stolen according to Kenilworth police.


Warwickshire’s Safer Neighbourhood Team for Kenilworth say they have seen a rise in the past week of crimes involving thefts from unattended vehicles.


PC Anna Brown of Kenilworth’s SNT said “We cannot emphasise enough to people not to leave any items of value in their vehicles. Thieves are opportunists and any unattended vehicle with items left on show, even bags, boxes or coats where the contents are not obvious, is too much of a temptation for theives to let go by.”


The warning comes in the light of two of the three recent incidents listed below.


Between 0415hrs and 0610hrs on Monday 1 November 2021 offenders have made a hole in the drivers door of a Renault Berlingo Multispace motor vehicle that was parked at Hollis Lane, Kenilworth.
