Luxury Cars Stolen From Across The County



07/07/14


Luxury vehicles worth more than £150,000 were stolen from properties in Lanarkshire.
Jaguar, Audi and BMW vehicles were among the ten stolen between the Lanarkshire area.

Many of the thefts were the result of thieves breaking into houses through back doors and windows and taking the car keys.
Vehicles included a Range Rover Sport, a Mini, an Audi Q7, a BMW Z4 and a Jaguar XF Sport.
The Range Rover was stolen from the car park of the Hilton Hotel, in Strathclyde Business Park, after thieves forced open a locker within the hotel and took the keys.

Police Scotland appealed for information and witnesses and have launched an investigation into the thefts.
They said they where at the "early stages" of their inquiry but thought the thefts where linked.

Officers urged people to take extra care not to leave their car keys on display and have also appealed for any car buyers or dealerships who may have been offered any of the vehicles for sale to contact them.
Properties targeted already have been in Moodiesburn, Stepps, Bothwell, East Kilbride, Wishaw and Coatbridge.

Sergeant Ross Aitken said: "I would like to remind householders to be mindful as to where they keep both their house and car keys, particularly overnight.

"Please do not leave them near your front or back doors or windows where thieves can easily see them and reach them, please keep them hidden away - don't give thieves a helping hand to steal your hard earned possessions.
"I'd also like to remind householders to ensure that they keep their home as secure as possible. If you have window locks, use them - particularly if you are leaving the property or retiring for the evening. The same goes for your car."
