Dear Citizen

Reference: 20WS/53010Y/18
Location: Fallowfield Road, Walsall
Date and time: between 7pm on Wednesday 7th and 8.40am on Thursday 8th March.
Details: the locked, unattended white Ford Transit van has been stolen by unknown means from it's owner's driveway.  The vehicle contained tools and ladders.

Careful drivers ensure they lock their cars before they leave them and check their fob has done its job.

But we’re starting to see a spate of keyless thefts across the region and would ask you to take a moment to consider how you can protect your vehicle.

One of the most effective ways to stop someone stealing your vehicle (keyless or not) is to use a wheel lock. That way even if thieves manage to open your car door they won’t be able to drive your vehicle away.

You can buy a steering wheel lock from a number of places, but we’ve partnered with Disklok, who are offering a 15 per cent discount on their products exclusively to drivers in the West Midlands Police area.

Ordering is simple – just log onto and enter the code wmpolice15 at the checkout.
