Police warning of plastic bottle car thieves

LanguedocLiving, Jun 14

Police are warning about car thieves with a new trick.

No, it’s not high tech car jacking, but a simple method to make you think you have a burst tyre.

Thieves are placing a plastic bottle between the front wheel and the wheel arch. When the driver sets off, it sounds as though the tyre has burst. Inevitably, the driver stops, checks out the tyre, when the thieves rush into the car and drive it away.

Please be aware of this trick and share this information to prevent more car thefts.
