Anyone who may have information about the current location of the stolen car or the offence itself is encouraged to contact police as soon as possible.
Most thieves are opportunists seeking easy entry points to homes and are not willing to invest much time or effort to gain entry.
Basic security such as locking doors and securing windows is sufficient to deter most offenders and protect your home.
We encourage you to store your car keys in secure and out of sight locations within your home.
