Guernsey Drive, Whitby - Theft of registration plate

On Monday 25th January 2021 of a resident reported that the front registration plate was missing from their vehicle.
The vehicle, a Hyundai I10 had been parked on their driveway for most of the weekend, however there is a possibility that it may have been removed elsewhere as they had used it the vehicle on Saturday and could not recall whether the registration plate had been there or not upon their return.

The registration plate shows H135 LOV.

Many thefts are committed by opportunists.  By taking simple measures to protect your property you can prevent becoming a victim of crime.

· Anti tamper screws – Fitting these to your registration plates prevents removal.
· Car Alarms – Although they cannot physically prevent the theft of or from your vehicle they are a powerful deterrent.  Some alarms can also come with an alerting system if they are activated.
· Steering locks / gearstick & handbrake locks – Although not impenetrable it increases the time taken to steal a car.  They can also be a visual deterrent so criminals may move on to find an  easier target.
· Secure Parking - If your home has a driveway, or better still a garage, then use it. Cars parked off the road are far less likely to be stolen than those parked on the road.   If not try to park in a well-lit area.
· Hide valuables – DON’T leave items on display. Ensure any items of value are removed from the vehicle or hidden out of site.
· LOCK YOUR CAR – Always check windows / doors / sunroofs are secure before leaving your vehicle, even if you are doing so for a very short while.
