Thieves have stolen a Suzuki Jeep from Wanstead by simply towing it away. Police admit the style of theft is unusual but are nevertheless warning residents to take note of the registration number of vehicles which are being towed, especially at night.
The incident took place in the Wanstead ward earlier this month.
Generally Wanstead and Snaresbrook wards are ranked average for thefts of motor vehicles, and as the diagrams from the Met’s Crime Maps site below indicate, the trend of the past three years is of falling incidents.
