Dear residents,

There has been a recent spate of thefts from motor vehicles within the Stubbington and Titchfield area. If you have been a victim of this crime please  contact us on 101 and provide us with details. If you live in Stubbington and have CCTV that may provide evidence of thefts from motor vehicles please could you review this and contact us on 101.

Below is some preventative advise:

  • When leaving your car, close all windows and lock your car.
  • Upon locking your vehicle try your car door to ensure it is actually locked. (updated advice)
  • Park your car in an attended car park.
  • Look for public car parks approved by the Park Mark scheme.
  • When parking at home, use your garage. If you don't have a garage, park in a well-lit area.
  • Don't leave anything on display in your vehicle.
  • Take all your personal possessions with you.
  • Remove sat nav holders and visible sat nav ring marks from windscreens.
  • Leave the glove box open to show there's nothing inside.
  • Fit an alarm or immobiliser to your car.
  • Record the details of your property on the Immobilise website (see right).
  • Do not store your car's documents in the car.
  • Secure your wheels using locking wheel nuts.
