Vehicle break-in at Walsall Wood – be on the lookout, please

Sad to report a vehicle break in at the Beech Tree Road car park in Walsall Wood yesterday evening (Thursday 28th December 2017).

Reader Kevin Shaw has been in touch to let me know that his car had been broken into last night whilst parked on the popular car park:

My car was broken into at Beechtree Road car park between 6:30 and 7:30pm this evening.

They smashed the drivers window and leant into car because of it being deadlocked – this set off the alarm. Nothing taken as far as I can tell.

Glove box and centre console rifled.

Police have been informed as this is the 5th time this year to my knowledge.

Nothing was on show in the car so no attraction for theft. Kinda puts a damper on Christmas

The people doing this are more than likely doing it to raise cash from the proceeds of selling what they steal. If you know of anyone hawking around tools, car stereos, satnavs, computers or other stuff that seems to be dubious, please grub them into the police – the stuff they’re flogging is probably nicked.

Anyone with information is urged to contact Walsall Police by dialling 101 or speak to Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

Please, lets see if we can nail these thieving buggers.
