Car broken into in Heath Hayes

We received a call just before 9.30am this morning (Thursday 21 January) reporting an attempted car theft in Cannock.

Between 11pm last night (Wednesday) and 6am this morning offenders broke into a locked black BMW which was parked on the street outside a residential property in Ansty Drive, Heath Hayes.

No damage was caused to the vehicle but the owners realised the vehicle had been tampered with as the car was unlocked with both front side windows down. The windscreen had also been cleared on the driver’s side.

Nothing was stolen from inside the car which indicates the offenders were disturbed.

Chief Inspector Geoff Knight, Commander of Cannock Chase Local Policing Team (LPT), said:

“If you see, or hear, anyone acting suspiciously in your community then please call us on 101.”

Some hot tips to avoid your vehicle being broken into include:

  • Ensure your vehicle is securely locked, including passenger doors and sun roof, and that alarms or immobilisers are switched on
  • Remove all belongings from the vehicle – even a bag of rubbish could convince a thief there is something worth stealing
  • Take your sat nav with you remembering to remove the cradle and wipe any sucker marks off the dashboard or windscreen. Leaving the cradle in place tells the crooks that the sat nav might be in the glove box or boot
  • Never leave your keys in the ignition while you fill up your car with petrol or diesel and when you go to pay for it
  • Park in a garage if you have one or park under street lights if possible
  • Remove work equipment from your vehicle
  • Keep your car keys in a safe place so if someone breaks into your home they cannot steal your vehicle as well.

Anyone with any information on the incident is asked to contact Staffordshire Police on 101, quoting incident number 156 of 21 January.
