We have seen a recent spike in the number of thefts from vehicles in the Andover area. We have also seen a number of catalytic converters being stolen from vehicles.
Always park in well-lit areas when possible. If you have a personal garage, keep your car in the garage with the door closed when the vehicle is not in use. Try to park your car near to an inhabited building. Consider purchasing a motion activated dash camera. Following these steps will make your vehicle a less attractive target for thieves.
We wish you a very Merry Christmas from the Andover Neighbourhood Policing Team.
