Multiple cars burgled in Liphook
- Phil (12th Apr 2018 @ 17:31:39)

Last night multiple cars were burgled in Liphook in Griggs Green and around the Avenue.

Keep your eyes out for a couple of guys in black acting suspiciously in the early hours, chances are they aren't local.

They appear to have cloned key fobs as my car was locked as were others, no signs of forced entry or car alarms sounding, don't leave too much money in your cars, I lost around £15 in parking change but they left other items like the Satnav.

If your car has keyless entry TURN IT OFF if you can. If not always keep both keys in a metal tin or RF blocking pouch. Always keep your keys out of reach of your letterbox.

Inadvertently, our car was left unlocked last night. Someone searched it thoroughly -- presumably looking for cash -- and left the satnav, dog treats and poo bags.

There was a similar post on Facebook (Liphook Rants) this morning.

Keep 'em peeled.

Hi, you might find that actually you did lock your car, the thieves can now unlocked certain cars, like my VW Golf, they have simple equipment that cycles through the codes until the car unlocks.

My car was definitely locked, and the thieves were in it on Wednesday evening.

It was interesting to read your post Phil. My car is also a VW Golf and was targeted down Malthouse Meadows. Perhaps there is a pattern in what vehicles the thieves stole from. I just assumed I didnít lock my car but perhaps I did! It will make me feel a little less stupid if thatís the case as I had stupidly left some money in the glove box.

One of our cars was also searched that night. Not mine but it was locked. They opened the glove pocket in my husband's car, placed papers on the seat but found no money nor Sat nav. We assumed it was a sat.nav they were after. We live in Griggs Green. Very worrying to read that cars can be stolen so easily.

this is of course is why garages are built with houses, yet no one seems to use them for cars anymore, if you have a garage why not use it for what it was intended for?,

How annoying the cars are being burgled but I suppose we should at least be grateful they aren't being smashed into or stolen. I few years back I was burgled in the night in Malthouse Meadows and I suspect they were after my car keys as all the draws downstairs were open any my coats rifled through. Fortunately I kept my car keys upstairs.

Wendy, in answer to why people don't keep their cars in garages. It is probably because the cars have grown too big for the garages. Frustratingly I physically couldn't fit my car into the garage and the car was just a normal hatchback.

Be more simple if the criminal scumbags didnt break into cars in the first place. Great to see Police patrolling the streets. Oh hang on they are not. Taxes being spent well.
