Jon Radcliffe, Countrywatch Officer at Petersfield Police Station in Petersfield, has been in touch with LRO to warn owners of Land Rovers in Sussex and Hampshire to be alert. In recent days there have been two thefts of Land Rovers from addresses in the West Sussex area. This is in line with the national trend where Land Rovers, particularly older style Defenders, are targetted by thieves.
PC Radcliffe's advice is that you should ensure that 'any vehicle is as secure as possible and, if appropriate, placed in an outbuilding or garage out of sight.'
PC Radcliffe can be contacted on 0845 045 4545 ext 775 112 with any information about the thefts.
