Theft from a vehicle- Daventry and Rural Villages

From Daventry Neighbourhood Policing Team

We are appealing for information after a there has been a number of vehicles that have had tools and other property taken from them. Recently we have had reports of this in the areas of Daventry, DIFT, Watford Gap, Long Buckby and Weedon.

These thefts occurred between 23rd July 2023 – 25th July items have been stolen from vans, lorries and cars.

We are keen to hear from anyone who may have any information relating to these crimes or that may have been in the area around the time of the incident and heard or seen anything suspicious. Please call us on 101 or report to us online here.

You can also pass on information anonymously to the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.

There are some simple but effective things you can do to help protect your vehicle:

  • Park your car in a garage or driveway if possible, or on a busy, well-lit road. Choose a ParkMark® accredited public car park wherever possible
  • Never leave anything on display in your car. The cost to repair damage to the vehicle will usually exceed the value of the theft
  • Drivers of some Toyota and Honda vehicles and some 4 x 4’s should install measures to deter theft of catalytic converts e.g Catloc | Catalytic Convertor Theft Protection

Further security tips and crime prevention advice can be found on the Northamptonshire Police website and on the Neighbourhood Watch website.
