9 people attended, including PC James Elvy who gave the report you can see below. One matter that was of particular concern was an unsubstantiated rumour that was doing rounds on Face- book, suggesting that there was a gang of criminals who having got hold of some-kind of master key were able to circumvent the locking systems of Audis and BMW’s and were indulging in a spate of thefts from high-end cars. James told us that no such activity was known to him, although there are criminals who have jamming devices which can be used to cancel your attempts to lock your car, but only if they are present and nearby when you try to do so, as they have to operate their device at exactly the same time. Even such devices can be dealt with by the simple expedient of checking your lock and making sure it has worked. James reminded us that random checks by the police reveal that a surprising number of residents do leave their cars unlocked and with valuable items in sight! The simple message is check your car doors, don’t leave anything lying about to tempt the opportunist, and don’t believe everything you read in Face-book!
