Car theft spate in south east Essex

Date: 25 June 2013

Residents in south-east Essex have been warned by local Police to be careful with their home security following a spate of burglaries in which cars have been stolen. 
Since the start of June there have been ten incidents where thieves have broken into homes specifically to take keys to cars parked outside.
Essex is the third region where cars are most frequently stolen and recovered, according to the latest analysis of figures from TRACKER, the leading stolen vehicle recovery (SVR) expert.
Stuart Chapman former Chief Superintendent with the South Yorkshire Police and Police Relationships Manager at TRACKER says, “This type of car crime is more common than people think. Our figures clearly show that prestige cars are a favourite with car thieves – BMW, Audi and Mercedes-Benz all appear in the top ten most stolen and recovered. Residents in Essex need to be more vigilant and ensure they report any suspicious behaviour.  
TRACKER is the UK's number one supplier of vehicle tracking services and has led the way in stolen vehicle recovery and telematics solutions for 20 years.
