Brazen thief steals car from driveway
A thief stole a pair of car keys from a house in Strathleven then made off with the homeowner’s car.
The crook struck at around 2.30am on Saturday, November 4 when the property on Strathleven Drive in Bonhill was broken into.
Police are appealing for information after the incident during which the Volkswagen Golf was stolen.
Residents living in the Bonhill estate were shocked by the incident.
One neighbour who lives nearby said:“It’s absolutely shocking. It’s normally so quiet here and nothing happens at all so to think someone has been waiting around for an opportunity to steal someone’s car is disgusting.
“I don’t think anything like that has happened down here since I have lived here.
“Hopefully they don’t target anyone else’s house. It’s got everyone on edge a bit.”
Detective Sergeant Alan Macdougall from Clydebank CID said: “Enquiries are at a very early stage to establish the full circumstances surrounding the incident and I would appeal to anyone who noticed anything suspicious to please come forward.
“Anyone with information is asked to contact Clydebank CID via 101 and quote incident number 0542 of Saturday, November 4. Alternatively you can call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 where details can be given in confidence.”
