Staffordshire Police - Advice: Car Key Burglaries






Your latest Smart Alert.

We are reminding residents to be on their guard and to review home and vehicle security following an increase in the number of burglaries where offenders have targeted the property with a view to stealing the keys and vehicle at the property.

We would urge residents to ensure their property is secure at all times, including all doors and windows and that items of value and keys are stored away out of view.

Offenders often target properties with high value/high performance vehicles on the driveway however this is not always the case! If keys are visible through windows and doors then offenders will break in; take the keys and make off in the vehicle.

Let's not make it easy for them!

If you have any information which could assist us with our enquiries, please contact us on 101 or anonymously via crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
