Theft of high value keyless vehicles

Alert message sent 12/09/2019 11:25:00

Information sent on behalf of Thames Valley Police


There has been an increase in the theft of high value keyless vehicles in the Bracknell and Wokingham areas.

To help prevent thefts and to ensure that your car is not an appealing target for a thief, we are asking you to be extra vigilant and consider your vehicle security.

Keep your electronic car key fob safe
When not in use, keep your electronic car key fob away from your doors and preferably in a security pouch to prevent it being scanned by thieves to open and steal your car nearby.

Always lock it
Electronic devices can be used to jam the electronic signal from your key fob to lock your vehicle. Always manually check your vehicle has locked before walking away. Scan the immediate area for anyone hanging around. If a potential thief who’s watching feels they’ve been spotted, they’ll probably move off.

Be vigilant
Look out for your neighbours when they are not home. If you see anything suspicious report it to the police and inform your neighbour.

Thank you for helping us to keep crime down.
