After a spree of parts being stolen from Land Rovers in West Norfolk, police are advising owners to park their 4x4’s in a garage overnight.
The first incident took place between 10.30pm on Thursday March 27 and 1am the next day, where two doors and the bonnet was stolen from a Land Rover Defender on Marsh Road, Outwell.
Between 5pm on Sunday April 6 and 10am the following morning, the interior seats, front grill and head lamps were stolen from another Land Rover Defender on Common Road, Bilney.
Just a day or so later, between 8pm Tuesday April 8th and 7am on Wednesday April 9, both doors were removed from yet another Land Rover Defender on Low Road, Stow Bridge.
Superintendent Dennis Lacey from Norfolk Police said: “The thefts are mainly in rural locations and the thieves are clearly taking some time in removing the items. The parts are often large so it is suspected that the offenders are using a van or a flatbed to transport the parts away from the scene.”
He added: “If you own a Land Rover we would ask that if possible you review your vehicle security system or consider parking your vehicle in a garage overnight.”
Officers would like to speak to anyone who may have any information regarding the thefts.
