Police in North Ayrshire are asking motorists to consider their vehicles security


Police in North Ayrshire are asking that motorists consider their vehicle’s security after a number of reported incidents over the weekend involving thefts from insecure vehicles in Irvine.

Insp. Colin Convery said: “Enquiries are ongoing at present to identify those responsible, however I would remind all car owners to secure their vehicles when not in use.”

• When at home keep your car off the street if possible. If you have a garage then use it if possible. Make sure you lock both the car and the garage. If you don’t have a garage, make use of the driveway if you have one.

• Lock all items out of sight. Don’t leave anything on display and take valuables with you.

• Leave the glove box empty and open.

• If you have a Sat Nav, hide the cradle and take the system with you. Don’t forget to wipe the suction marks off the window.

• If you have personal correspondence in the vehicle, then take it with you. Don’t give others access to important personal information or your home address.
