Information sent on behalf of Thames Valley Police

This message is dated Wednesday 23rd January 2019 for the whole area.
 I have just had a request through to circulate some information:
 Hi Jeff, 
 Please can you put something out on TVP Alert to all residents in RBWM.
 We have had a number of cars stolen in the past 2 weeks, mainly older registered vehicles. A common theme would seem to be, a white pick-up / Tipper lorry with a white cab, and a towing point or jack, on the rear.

There have also been reports of 2 / 3 men wearing hi viz vests, travelling around and enquiring, whether parked up older cars are for sale.  Men matching this description, have also been reported breaking into cars before connecting the towing equipment and removing them.
If you see anything you believe to be suspicious and think a car may be being stolen - please 999 it immediately, or if you are less sure, dial 101 or report it online - see below.  If you can - without putting yourself at any risk - photograph or video them on your mobile phone and send it to us.  Please make sure photos / videos include index numbers of any pick-up trucks as well any images / phone numbers / logos on the sides.
The 101 number is still functioning properly, but I am afraid it may be slow to answer at the moment - if you are experiencing delays, you can always make contact with us using the online reporting system:
