Information sent on behalf of Cheshire Constabulary

Good Afternoon,

A burglary occurred on Whitchurch Road, Chester, between 18.00hrs Tues 4 December and 07.00hrs on Weds 05 December 2018, during which unknown offender(s) have stolen a Mercedes motor car from the drive.

Police are appealing for witnesses who may have seen or heard anything that may assist the investigations, or anyone in this area that may have CCTV or Dashcam footage that could assist. If you have any information regarding the above incident then please contact 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555111 if you wish to remain anonymous.

Residents are reminded to remain vigilant in relation to home and vehicle security given the recent offence in the area.

Here's a checklist of things you can do to help prevent car crime.

•Parking – park somewhere safe, for example: your garage, a well–lit, busy street or a car park displaying the 'Park Mark' logo of the ACPO Safer Parking Scheme
•Reduce theft – set the alarm/immobiliser and fit a physical deterrent such as a steering wheel clamp
•Valuable items – keep valuable items out of sight, for example; Sat Navs, mobile phones, CDs, stereos etc. All of these items attract thieves.
•Locking the car – whenever you leave the car, close all the windows and lock the doors, even at petrol stations
•Car keys – take them with you whenever you get out of the car, and don't leave them on display at home. Remember thieves do break into houses to steal car keys.
•Documents – never leave valuable documents in your car

For extra security, fit an anti-theft device such as an alarm or immobiliser. If you are buying a new car it is a good idea to check the level of built-in security features. Consider having your registration number etched on all your car windows. This is a cheap and effective deterrent to professional thieves.

I hope this helps.
