Cars stolen while defrosting
Over a couple of days recently there were a significant number of thefts of motor vehicles across the force area, where the owners had left their vehicle unattended with the engine running to defrost the vehicle and when they had returned the vehicle had been stolen.
This has happened before in this area and was a concern last year and from speaking to officers from neighbouring forces is not something limited to Merseyside.
With the forecast showing cold weather in the coming period and possibly beyond could you please make people aware of this, so hopefully they don't become the victim, as there is an indication that it is highly likely insurance companies will not pay out if a vehicle is stolen in this manner.
