The police are warning owners of BMWs be take extra care after a spate of thefts.

Officers have been conducting extra patrols in the area and have issued the following advice: Keep your vehicle locked and secure; use a garage or driveway if you have one; if you have more than one vehicle and only one space – park your BMW in the space; consider the use of mechanical immobilisers, such as steering wheel locks; if you have more than one vehicle, block your BMW in.
People are asked to contact the police immediately if they see anyone loitering around a BMW or acting suspiciously.
