Police warning to drivers


A police warning has been released to Bradford drivers of cars with built-in sat-nav systems to be extra vigilant, as there have been an alarming number of smash-and-grab thefts in the local area recently.

Organised thieves are targeting Audi and Volkswagens that have been fitted with factory-fitted satellite navigation systems to break into and steam cars in particular are being targeted by who have been stealing factory-fitted systems.

Inspector Tom Horner of Bradford police, confirmed Audi and VW vehicles were being targeted by criminals across Bradford for their 'integrated' sat-nav systems. Insp Horner continued by saying it was difficult to prevent the theft of fitted sat-navs but increase in public awareness and vigilance would help the police catch those responsible. In an effort to combat the issues, Police had been working closely with Bradford City and bringing in extra resources.

A spokesman for Audi UK, part of the Volkswagen group, said "The security performance of Audi vehicles is of paramount importance to the brand, and any reported potential breach will always be investigated as a matter of the utmost urgency,

"Audi standards of anti-theft protection are among the very highest in the UK, and the brand has been consistently held up by the Thatcham laboratories (UK) as a key industry leader for theft-of and theft-from protection for close to ten years." He continued.
