Vehicle Crime Update Basingstoke

Alert message sent 12/02/2019 09:50:00

Information sent on behalf of Hampshire Constabulary

Theft from motor vehicles has been and continues to be topical in #Basingstoke in that we are still experiencing some mainly overnight. Thefts of steering wheels have been in the south of the town #HatchWarren #BrightonHill #Beggarwood this may be part of a more organised picture. Just under ten offences in the last few months.
Unlocked vehicles being targeted and items stolen from within mainly in and around #Popley #Oakridge #Chineham #SherfieldPark
We have also had some thefts from work vans with tools being the target.
Most offences have been overnights but mainly in the early hours of the morning.
Our local neighbourhood team is employing many differing tactics to address these issues along with stepping up local patrols in line with ongoing investigations.
The one thing which assists the most is where members of the public have had activations of their home CCTV and have contacted us to report this. The images provide a significant help in identifying suspects and we ask that even if you aren’t the victim of a crime that you may still hold vital images which could assist us. Many CCTV systems have notifications which if checked may show persons.
Please ensure that your vehicles are locked with any valuables removed from sight.
Any keyless entry vehicles – that the keys are as far away from the vehicle as possible or using a key guard or pouch designed to block the signal when not in use.
Thank you to those who have already called and supplied these.

We have had great success recently and would like to work with you to maximise our opportunties to prevent more offences.
