Police Offer Safety Advice To Faversham Car Owners

Kent Police are reminding car owners in Faversham of some crime prevention advice following reports of 4X4 vehicles being targeted by thieves.

Between May and August a number of tail lights have been reported to have been stolen from vehicles parked across the town, with commercial premises and residential addresses being targeted.

It appears to be specific to Land Rover Discovery models, mostly registered after 2010, and at present no arrests have been made but officers from the Swale Community Safety Unit are conducting ongoing enquiries into the incidents.

Anyone with information is asked to call Kent Police on 01795 419119 quoting XY/27867/18.

Alternatively, you can contact the independent charity Crimestoppers in Kent anonymously on 0800 555 111.

There are a number of steps car owners can take to help keep their vehicles safe, including:

• Parking in a garage, if one is available.
• Parking in a secure car park or well-lit location whenever possible.
• Put a small security mark on your tail lights which can help police track the owner if recovered.
