Vehicle Crime – Theft from. Barton Road. Several males seen stealing tools from works van. (Totalling approx.£3000). The offenders got into a Blue Ford Focus and left the area at speed. This is the same vehicle involved in the theft of pedal cycle in Bidford on the 26th April. The Focus has cloned number plates. 1.50pm Tuesday 24th April. 0211 24/04/2018
A number of burglaries have taken place where the offenders have snapped the door locks to gain entry. This involves breaking the cylinder in two allowing the lock to be manipulated and opened. This will release all the multi locking points around the door. Anti-Snap locks can be fitted to combat this type of crime. We advise you to check to see if your locks are anti-snap. There are numerous websites and YouTube videos on this issue. Here is one example of a website that will help explain the situation further –http://www.locksmiths.co.uk/about/public/cylinder-snapping/
Cloned Number Plates
There are two incidents in our report this week which relate to the offenders being in a Blue Ford Focus. On both occasions the registration number has been seen and passed to police. It seems that this plate has been cloned – this means that a set of fake number plates have been created matching a legitimate Ford Focus somewhere else in the country. These fake plates have then been fitted to the offenders car. Further enquiries are being made with regards the Ford Focus.
