There have been a number of car thefts in Biggin Hill recently, which is reflected in similar crimes in The Borough and elsewhere. Cars are now much more secure so in many cases the house is burgled to steal the keys to the car, as so often these keys are just left in the hall, so very easy to steal. Please place car keys in a secure place, preferably in your bedroom overnight.
Another development of modern technology with Keyless cars, enables the thief to pick up the signal from the keyless fob and transmit it to an accomplice who can then open the car and start the engine. The same advice applies, do not leave Keyless cars fobs in the hall or near the front door, just take them in to the bedroom. It is preferable to place the fob in a metal box of any kind, which will prevent transmission.
