Thefts From Vehicles

Solihull Police have seen an increase in reports of theft from motor vehicles. Items such as dash cams, mobile devices (phones and laptops) cash,clothing and even sweets are being stolen from insecure vehicles.
We have also seen an increase in vehicle windows being smashed to steal items left on view. Often repairing the damage to the vehicle is more expensive than replacing what’s been stolen and is really inconvenient to vehicle owners when they have to arrange the repair. Officers have been out speaking to residents and checking CCTV so if you have any information contact WMP online live chat

Or call 101
You can also give information 100% anonymously to CRIMESTOPPERS https://bit.ly/3If1TD3

The vast majority of these offences are happening overnight so we are asking local residents to check that their vehicle is locked and all valuables are removed to help prevent you being targeted by opportunistic thieves
