The Accra Regional Police Command has warned the public of a new trend in relation to vehicle break-ins.
In a statement issued by the Public Affairs Unit of the Accra Regional Police Command, the warning follows the arrest of three suspects who operate and have succeeded in stealing from their targets under the modus in recent times.
According to the police, the syndicate uses sophisticated electronic devices to interfere with the locking system of unsuspecting victims as they park their vehicles, gain entry and steal monies and other valuables.
The police further added that the syndicate usually operate at parking lots, shopping malls, recreational centres and similar places of interest.
The police, however, advised the public to take note of the following crime prevention tips:
- Lookout for people loitering at car parks and alert the security on the ground.
- Crosscheck doors to ensure they are properly locked before leaving parking lots.
- Avoid exposing or leaving valuables in vehicles.
- Management of public facilities should enhance the security of their premises by installing CCTVs.
