Ve­hi­cle safety ad­vice

East Kilbride News - - NEWS -

Po­lice are warn­ing mo­torists to be ex­tra vig­i­lant amidst a spate of car thefts in the town.

Overnight into Jan­uary 5, en­try was forced to a Ford Tran­sit van on Dar­win Road, West­wood, which was sub­se­quently stolen. This lat­est in­ci­dent fol­lows a spate of ve­hi­cle thefts in the town.

Last month East Kil­bride was hit by a mini crime­wave over one week­end with homes and ve­hi­cles tar­geted by op­por­tunist thieves.

A £20,000 Har­ley Davidson mo­tor­bike was stolen in a break-in from Wilson Place, Ner­ston at around 10.30am on De­cem­ber 8 – a Ford Tran­sit van con­tain­ing tools and golf clubs worth £6000 was stolen from Spring­burn Place in Col­lege Mil­ton at around 10.30pm the same day.

Thieves also made off in a car parked on a road­way in Falk­land Drive, West Mains.

The ve­hi­cle was later re­cov­ered by cops near Ar­rot­s­hole Road, Ste­wart­field.

Fi­nally, overnight into De­cem­ber 9, a Range Rover was stolen from Maxwell Drive car park.

Wit­nesses should call 101 or 0800 555 111.
