Beauty Spot thefts

Alert message sent 09/11/2018 14:19:00

Information sent on behalf of Thames Valley Police

Please be vigilant around rural beauty spot locations. The Faringdon and Wantage area has suffered 8 theft from vehicles over the 7th and 8th November at varying times of the day. This has included theft of registration plates and smashed windows enabling suspects to search through concealed areas of storage/glove boxes within cars.

Efforts are ongoing with neighbouring Police areas to identify and arrest the suspects who are offending across different forces.  The most recent information suggests offenders were using a dark coloured Volkswagen Golf in the last two days. However, the suspect's are stealing and regularly changing the displayed registration plates.

Please report any suspicious activity on 999 to enable us the best opportunity to locate and catch these offenders operating in our rural areas.

Offenders have targetted vehicles with nothing left on show and we suggest choosing parking locations close to areas where there is a continual public presence to deter offenders and ensure you leave no valuables including bank cards and wallets inside your vehicle.

We will be highly visible in the area conducting patrols and to reassure you that our beauty spots still remain a safe place to enjoy.
