Rural officers recover stolen Land Rovers
Kent Police has now seized three stolen Land Rovers in just two weeks and drivers are being reminded of the steps they can take to deter thieves.
Officers are now reminding motorists to take steps to deter criminals:
Lock all doors and close the windows whenever you leave the vehicle.
Don’t leave anything on display – even a jacket can seem like an appealing target for a thief
Wipe away suction marks from your sat nav on the windscreen or dashboard
Park in a garage, secure car park or well-lit area if possible
Consider having windows etched with the vehicle registration number or use an invisible ink marker pen to mark these details and you postcode on the underside frame of the vehicle.
Make a note of the chassis number.
Make sure you don’t leave your car keys visible from the outside of your home
