This message is to make all Land Rover owners aware of an emerging crime trend in Northamptonshire. Criminals are targeting the Land Rover 90 and 110 models for parts as well as stealing the vehicles themselves. Whilst the Land Rover 90 and 110 are excellent workhorses, they are also a valuable tool and prestige item. When not in use, please ensure your vehicle is secured, whether it is parked outside your residence, at work, in a rural setting, shopping or at a sporting event. Remember parts from your vehicle such as doors, bonnets and wheels are very saleable.
If you have a garage, please put your vehicle in it. The garage should be alarmed. Your vehicle should be fitted with an alarm and immobiliser. If your vehicle is regularly parked on your driveway consider fitting a detection device to warn you of criminals approaching your vehicle. Please be assured that although this is an emerging trend, Northamptonshire Police is working hard to indentify the offenders involved.
We are appealing for you help in reporting any persons acting suspiciously around your vehicle immediately on 03000 111 222 or 999 in the event of an emergency/crime in progress.
