Appeal for witnesses following an attempted  burglary and a car theft in Crowthorne
Thames Valley Police is appealing for witnesses following an attempted burglary in Ellis Road, Crowthorne.
At 01.35am on Sunday 5 May 2019 the occupants of a house on Ellis Road were awoken by the sound of offenders attempting to force their front door, and by the activation of security lights that cover there front driveway where there were 3 cars parked. The offenders fled when the homeowner shouted at them, fortunately with no apparent damage been caused or anything been stolen.
Nothing was seen of the offenders by the homeowner so there is no description.
A brown coloured Range Rover motor car was stolen during the same night from a drive way in Lupin Ride Crowthorne which is only about 0.5mile away. The Range Rover had been left secure by its owner at 10.30pm on Saturday evening and it is known that the car had been stolen before 2.14am.
Thames Valley police is appealing for anyone who may have witnessed either  incident, or has Security CCTV in the area or may have information to call our        24-hour contact centre on 101, quoting reference 43190134462.
If you don’t want to speak directly to police you can contact the independent charity “Crimestoppers” anonymously on 0800 555 111. No personal details are asked for, and your call is not traced or recorded, and you wouldn’t be expected to attend court.
If you own a vehicle with a keyless entry and ignition system, which you have to leave parked on your driveway, it is worth bearing in mind that thieves have developed electronic “data reader” type devices with which they will scan for the signal been transmitted by your key fob, and which they will then use to access and start the vehicle. As such never leave your vehicle keys near to your front door, and better still either purchase a purpose made security wallet that prevents the fob transmitting, or alternatively put your car keys in a metal tin or box when your at home.

Feel free to share this information with your neighbours , friends and family.
