Coventry Telegraph - - NEWS - By BEN ECCLESTON Crime Reporter news@reach­plc.com

A HIGH-VALUE car was stolen from the drive­way of a home while the owner slept.

The grey Mercedes C300 was taken from out­side the house in Pem­bury Av­enue, Long­ford, in the early hours of Tues­day, June 12.

The car’s owner, Luke Wilson, says the thieves struck be­tween mid­night and 6am while he and his mother were sleep­ing in­side the house. Luke said: “I went to bed last night with the car on the drive. I fell asleep and my mum was asleep as well.

“They’ve come on to the drive and as it’s key­less so they must have used a de­vice to take the car.

“One of the neigh­bours is go­ing through their CCTV to try and find out ex­actly what time.”

A spokesman for West Mid­lands Po­lice said: “We are in­ves­ti­gat­ing the theft of a grey Mercedes coupe from a drive­way out­side an ad­dress in Pem­bury Av­enue, Long­ford, Coventry.

“The car was taken some­time be­tween 10pm on June 11 and 6.30am on June 12.”

Any­one with any in­for­ma­tion is asked to call West Mid­lands Po­lice on 101, quot­ing crime ref­er­ence 20CV/130529H/18.
