Theft from Motor Vehicle: Lichfield

Report of a theft from a motor vehicle received at 7.40am today (17 September) at an address in Weston Road.

Offender/s forced entry to secure vehicle and stole tools, including two Bosch drills, one cordless, a Bosch electric jigsaw, drill bits, batteries, chargers and a transformer.

Drivers can take a few simple measures to reduce their chances of becoming a victim of this sort of crime.

Inspector Rob Neeson, Commander of Lichfield District Local Policing Team (LPT), said: “Many criminals often just take advantage if an opportunity appears – if they go past a car and see a mobile phone on the seat or a Sat Nav in its cradle; they’ll break in and take them. If the vehicle looks empty, they are far more likely to leave it alone. By keeping things out of sight, your vehicle may present less of an open invitation to them.”

Anyone with any information is asked to contact Staffordshire Police on 101 quoting incident number 97 of September 17.
