Thefts of and from Land Rovers

Neighbourhood WatchWest Mercia Police yesterday (15/11/17) posted a Neighbourhood Watch Message here on their website. It lists a spate of thefts across the county of thefts of Land Rovers or of particular parts from them.

These vehicles are vital in any rural community like ours, so it is well worth local residents being aware that Land Rovers are particularly at risk from thieves. The nearest theft to the Hodnet area was of a complete vehicle from the Shawbury area yesterday. Here is the complete list:

  • 7 Sep. Cressage Vehicle
  • Land Rover in Hodnet14 Sep. Welshampton Vehicle
  • 21 Sep. Cruckton Vehicle
  • 28 Sep. Ashford Bowdler Vehicle
  • 4 Oct. Acton Burnell Attempted Theft
  • 12 Oct. Stanton Long Bonnet
  • 19 Oct. Ludlow Bonnet
  • 31 Oct. Broseley Attempted Theft
  • 2 Nov. Bridgnorth Bonnet
  • 11 Nov. Annscroft Shrewsbury Headlights
  • 13 Nov. Much Wenlock Bonnet
  • 15 Nov. Shawbury Vehicle

During these three months, 3 thefts of/from Land Rovers were also recorded by Telford Police and 2 by Herefordshire Police. Vehicle number plates are also targeted frequently by thieves.

WMP ask for owners help to deter thieves and to make it easier to identify stolen vehicles by putting security marks (forensic liquid) on external accessories.
