Wednesfield Beware – Be On Guard.

Interestingly Walsall Police have been warning Coppice Farm Neighbourhood Watch that “From July 1st 2019 to-date on the walsall/wolverhampton area we have had 30 recorded ford fiesta model vehicles stolen ( Keyless ). It would appear that a key decoder device is being used to obtain entry and start the vehicle allowing them to steal it.

 
So that is a standout statistic, and one that perhaps we should do all that we can here in Wednesfield North to guard against.
 
Its clear that the thieves do have an electronic device that helps them gain access. Please be on your guard Wednesfield.
This the message that their Local Neighbourhood Watch is giving. It seems a sensible bit of crime advice and that is why I am replicating their message here.

“I am aware that i have spoken about this before but i would just like to press the message forward again.

From July 1st 2019 to-date on the walsall/wolverhampton area we have had 30 recorded ford fiesta model vehicles stolen ( Keyless ). It would appear that a key decoder device is being used to obtain entry and start the vehicle allowing them to steal it.

It is amazing to think that with all the technology that has gone into motor vehicles that they can still be easily stolen.

One of the methods which could potentially stop them in their tracks/make them think twice/deter them is the good old fashioned way of fitting a device around the steering wheel.

Disklok is an effective full cover steering wheel security lock for cars and light commercial vehicles. Its ability to spin on the wheel when attacked, preventing steering and damage to the vehicle’s own steering wheel lock.

You can look on u tube to see how effective fitting one of these devices can be.”
