Warning for Mercedes Owners

Alert message sent 07/12/2018 14:45:00

Information sent on behalf of West Mids Police


Dear Citizen

This is a message for owners of Mercedes vehicles, particularly vans.

We have noticed a small increase in the theft of Mercedes vehicles recently, mostly vans, which are generally being stolen by unknown means.  No attempt is being made to obtain keys.

If you own a Mercedes of any type, think about what you can do to make it more secure, such as fitting an aftermarket security system or using a physical device such as a steering wheel lock or wheel clamp.  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 www.disklokuk.co.uk and enter the code wmnowdsk15 at the checkout.

For more tips on how to keep your vehicle safe this winter see our website

If you have any information which may assist the police in any way, please contact us via Live Chat at west-midlands.police.uk between 8am to midnight, call 101 anytime or contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
