Cars Stolen After Thieves Take Keys

Police are warning motorists not to risk having their vehicles stolen following two thefts on Monday 24 September where the owners left their car keys on show.

In the first incident, at shortly after 3pm in Long Lawford near Rugby, the driver of a white Ford Transit van pulled up outside a house where some work was being carried out. The driver went into the front porch of the property, put the keys down on the side and then went round the back of the property.

When he returned a minute later his van, which was loaded with building supplies, had been stolen, using the keys from the porch.

In a second incident, which is not linked to the first, a motorist in Newbold-on-Stour near Stratford, left his silver Nissan Navara car unattended for a moment in Church Road at around 5.45pm, with the keys in the ignition.

When he returned a few moments later his car had been stolen.

Police remind motorists that they should always remove ignition keys and lock their vehicle every time they leave it, even if it is for a few moments.

A police spokesperson said, "Unfortunately we know there are people around who are watching out for easy opportunities to steal cars.

"If you leave the keys in the ignition, or put them somewhere where they are easily available, it is an open invitation for someone to steal your property.

"Motorists should also be aware that your motor insurance may not cover you if your vehicle is stolen after the keys have been left in the ignition, or reasonable care has not been taken to keep the vehicle secure."
