Police issue warning after spate of Land Rover thefts
Detectives are urging Land Rover owners to take steps to secure their vehicles, after a spike in thefts across South Yorkshire.
Since the beginning of May, 42 Land Rovers have been reported as stolen across the region.
Keyless entry vehicles are the most popular with thieves and officers are asking people to follow simple security advice to protect their car, and their home.
Out of the 42 vehicles stolen, nine have been recovered with enquiries ongoing to locate the others.
Two people have also been arrested and questioned.
Detective Chief Inspector Jamie Henderson said: “Having your car stolen, whatever it is, is distressing and it’s also costly.
“We know that crime prevention does work and often the old-fashioned measures are the best, such as steering wheel locks, which simply put criminals off even having a go at your car.
“If you’ve got a keyless car, please get yourself a signal blocking pouch, container or box to keep your keys in – they really do work.”
