There has been an increase in Land Rover thefts in the area. Sometimes the entire vehicle is taken and other times just parts are removed. Land Rover Defenders are targeted because of their ‘classic’ status since production was ceased in early 2016. Please follow the advice below to decrease the risk of being a victim:

  • Fit a mechanical immobiliser such as a steering or pedal lock
  • Fit an alarm for added security
  • Fit a tracking device
  • Thieves will target component parts so consider marking them using a forensic marking solution or system
  • Keep the vehicle in a lockable garage/building or park in well-lit areas, which are overlooked
  • Have the vehicle identification number etched on windows
  • Consider fitting a hidden battery isolation or a fuel cut-off switch
  • Take photographs of unusual features, modifications, damage or repairs which could aid identification if stolen
  • Ensure any valuables are removed from the vehicle

For any further advice please contact the Henley Neighbourhood Team by emailing or calling 101.
