Swale residents urged to keep vehicles secure

Swale residents are being urged to keep their vehicles secure to prevent thieves from breaking in.

Kent Police is continuing to tackle those who commit such offences, and on Saturday 7 January 2017 officers travelled to the Thistle Hill estate in Minster, Sheppey, following reports that a man had been acting suspiciously around cars in the area.


Shane Baker, 28, of no fixed address, was arrested nearby and subsequently charged with one count of theft from a motor vehicle.


The charge relates to an incident in Eadred Way, Kemsley, on Friday 30 December 2016 in which cash and a phone charger were reportedly stolen from a car.


Mr Baker has been released on bail and will appear before Medway magistrates on Thursday 2 March 2017.


Crime prevention advice


As well as locking and alarming your vehicle, it is advisable to:


  • Remove any valuable or sentimental items;


  • Secure items in your boot or take them with you if you need to leave your vehicle while you are out;


  • Park in a secure car park or well-lit location whenever possible;


  • Wipe away satnav suction marks, as sometimes these entice a thief to break in.
