Do not leave your car unattended whilst it is unlocked and defrosting on your driveway. If you need to defrost your car then you need to stay with it if the engine is running. Do NOT leave it for one minute because that’s all it can take for someone to make off in your car. Also please note that many car insurance policies don’ t cover theft by this method and therefore they DO NOT pay out! – simply its classed as the owners own fault by being careless and leaving their car running unsecured.
We have been notified that Solihull area was hit very badly last week (6 cars stolen in one morning) so please be vigilant.
Please keep an eye on your property or it maybe be stolen.
