SELLERS, DON’T GET TAKEN FOR A RIDE
A NUMBER of vehicles have been stolen after the owners advertised them for sale on websites. It is strongly suspected offenders have been contacting the sellers and arranging to come and view the vehicles. In some cases, the sellers have given their address to prospective buyers and arranged a date and time. The person has not arrived at the arranged time and the seller has been unable to contact them. The seller has then been subject to burglary or theft where the advertised vehicle has been stolen. - Senior Sergeant Stephen Thompson
