Porsche one of three cars stolen in Kidderminster burglaries

First published in Local

A DISTINCTIVE blue Porsche 911 Carrera was one of three vehicles stolen in two car key burglaries in Kidderminster.

The Porsche, registration VNP78, is a convertible with a black roof as was taken from the driveway of a home in Sutton Park Rise between 11pm last night and 6.30am today.

The £20,000 car was stolen after thieves got into the house through a window and took the keys.

Police are warning it is the third car key burglary in Kidderminster this week.

Burglars also entered a house in St John’s Street through a back door between midnight last night and 6am today and took the keys to a blue, five-door Fiesta Zetec, registration E4EMO and a silver coloured Vauxhall Vivaro panel van, registered VO12 YLH, which they drove away.

Other property stolen from the house included a Sony TV, Apple Mac laptop and cigarettes and tobacco.

In the early hours of Tuesday a white VW Golf GTD, registration VK60 XYJ, was stolen from a driveway in Connaught Avenue in another car key burglary.

Det Sgt Duncan Lloyd of Kidderminster CID said: “The Porsche, in particular, is a very distinctive vehicle so someone may have witnessed it being driven away or has seen it since then.

“While we don’t know if these offences are linked it is very unusual to get three car key burglaries like this so close together in Wyre Forest and people need to be aware of this and take whatever precautions they can to ensure their homes are secure.”

Anyone with information should call Det Sgt LLoyd on 101, quoting incident 32-N-111012, or ring Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.

Shame to see West Mercia Police recent Burglary initiative starting off to such an epic fail

Citadel is a forcewide initiative aimed at driving down the number of burglaries committed in the force area.

Burglary of people's homes and catching the criminals who commit these offences is a high priority for the Chief Constable and the force. In conjunction with the Police Authority, we have set ourselves stringent targets to ensure that no more than 10 burglaries a day are committed across Herefordshire, Shropshire, Telford & Wrekin and Worcestershire.

What should we expect?!
If anyone gets caught it's a slap on the wrist and "Don't be naughty again"!!!
Still, the do-gooders can sleep sound in their beds knowing they've done a good days work, stopping another thieving thug from any real punishment.
Well done!
