|Thames Valley Police have seen an increase in reports of thefts and attempted thefts of keyless vehicles across the Bracknell and Wokingham areas.
Offenders often use a device and a laptop to intercept the signal from the remote sensor on keyless fobs and gain entry to the vehicle. They can then start the vehicle without the key and drive away.
To help prevent thefts and ensure your car is not an appealing target for a thief, we are asking you to be extra vigilant and consider your vehicle security.
• Keep key fobs away from windows and doors when at home.
If you see or hear anything suspicious around houses with keyless cars in your area then please let us know on www.thamesvalley.police.uk or by calling 101 or 999 if you believe a crime is in progress.
