Mobile Phone Thefts

Mobile Phone Thefts in the area

At the moment there is an emerging crime trend taking place on the ward.
This involves the snatching of mobile telephones out of the victims hands whilst they are using the phones walking down the street.
These offences are taking place around the south end of Chamberlayne Road, Kilburn Lane, Harrow Road and the surrounding side streets.
The suspects are young males riding pedal cycles and approach victims from behind and snatch the phone and make off. There are varying descriptions. Sometimes there are two suspects involved. The majority of phones stolen are iphones or Blackberrys.
Please take care when using your phone. Take time to survey your surroundings. If you see anyone acting suspiciously don’t use your phone. Ensure that you record all the phones identifying features and IMEI number and keep that information safe. Register your phone with immobilise.com. Install tracker apps such as find my iphone (Which is free, and easy to setup).
