Default keep your keys in a safe place

i saw my youngest brother on saturday,he woke up on sunday morning to find his VW TIGUAN gone, some scum bag got in the house while they were asleep, his wallet was on the kitchen work top,they never took that,or anything else,they targeted the car, he's well gutted, as i would be.a bit of ADVICE do not leave your key's where someone looking in your window can see them, he's told the insurance company & the police he doesn't want the car back as the scumbag's will rag the hell out of it, for his sake i hope it isn't found, not sure where he stand's see this on the tv, it's a bit closer to home when it's a family member involved.

Without the key modern cars are very hard to steal, so breaking in to your home and taking them is a common practice today.
It follows that to protect your car you need to make your house hard to break into, I dare say this will become a more common practice in future so the next stage will you will get mugged for your keys....

I think your brothers car was stolen to order, if it was some scrotes trying their luck they surely wouldn't overlook a wallet.

Thats the problem nowadays cars are stolen to order the days of the joyrider ragging it round the local estate are long gone.

The car will be either in a container or being stripped for parts most likely.
assume nothing check everything twice !!

Was there any cash in the wallet? Was it still there after? If so, car was stolen to order.

Once you strip it, you can get thousands. Nice, easy and untraceable - soon as you get the car in, you grind off the VIN's & engine serial. Then take your time to part it out.
