Vehicle thefts linked to sales viewings prompts security reminder
Main article content
People selling their cars are being reminded to take care during viewings after a number of vehicles were stolen in Wellingborough and east Northamptonshire.
Cars have either been taken after the owners left them running with keys in, or after offenders managed to swap keys for dummy ones during test drives and returned later to steal the car.
With investigations into the thefts underway, officers are reminding people to take care while selling their car or van, paying attention to the whereabouts of keys during viewings and not allowing prospective buyers to take vehicles for a test drive alone.
If you have any information that could be relevant to the investigations, please contact Northamptonshire Police on 101.
