Theft of a Van in your area!



North Wales Police have received a report of a van being stolen from the Flint area. 

We are encouraging all local residents to consider the following crime prevention advice to reduce the chances of others becoming victims of a similar crime. 


-Physically check that your vehicle doors and windows are closed and locked. 

-Consider purchasing CCTV to cover the area in which your vehicle is kept over night. 

-Consider investing in security lighting for the property to cover entry and exit points.

-Ensure that all sets of keys for the vehicle are kept in a secure location overnight or when the vehicle is unattended. 

-Consider purchasing a steering wheel lock, or a wheel lock for your vehicle. 

-Consider purchasing window alarms and door alarms for your vehicle.

-Consider purchasing an RFID pouch to store all keyless entry keys in. (This will stop them from being cloned). 

-Never keep spare keys on show i.e. in front windows, near front doors or within "Fishing" distance from an entry point.
