A spokesperson for Northamptonshire Police said: “We’d advise people to invest in signal blocking pouches for their car keys as this can stop access to your vehicle by blocking your car key fob from transmitting its code to the vehicle, as the pouches are lined with layers of metallic material.
“Putting your keys in a signal blocking pouch will stop any thieves from being able to amplify the signal used in relay theft.”
Anyone with any information or footage of the area between the stated times should contact Northamptonshire Police on 101, quoting crime reference number: 20000647191.
