Vehicle Crime Alert - Horndean

Alert message sent 22/01/2020 10:01:00

Information sent on behalf of Hampshire Constabulary



Recently 2 incidents of theft from motor vehicle was reported whereby the vehicle index plates were stolen as follows: 

One occurred between 20/01/20@ 18.00 - 21/01/20 @ 10.00 hrs in Walden Gardens (44200024839) and the other between 20/01/20 @ 22.00 - 21/01/20 @ 15.00 hrs in Chilworth Gardens (44200025323).

If you have any information regarding the above incidents please contact police on 101 quoting the reference numbers above.

Please report index plate theft if you become a victim as you may receive summonses for unpaid parking and speeding tickets, or may even be questioned by police in connection with more serious crimes, as plates may be used to aid secondary crimes.
 
The following prevention/reduction actions and advice will assist police and partners to reduce the potential risk of crime and prevent members of the public from becoming victims.
 
Advice:
 
Park your car in a garage at night or park to prevent access to either front or rear number plate.
Park in a safe public car park.
If parking on a public road, park in a well-lit spot.
Use theft resistant number plates, which are designed to break apart if they are forcibly removed from a vehicle (see right).
Fit security screws. Simple anti-theft devices can be easily fitted with a screwdriver in place of existing screws, but cannot be removed using standard tools (use correct security screws appropriate for the pre-existing number plate screw size and application).
Ask members of the public to contact police if they notice a car with different number plates on the front and the back of the vehicle.
