Warning Distraction Thieves Working in Car Parks

We have just been notified that 3 distraction thieves are working in the car parks in Henley today (Tuesday).

A victim who lost her passport, cards and cash said that the thieves say that your car is damaged when you’re sat in the car and one of the thieves asks you to get out and look whilst the other takes your things.  She gave a description of the 2 men – 1 Asian, 1 white with a foreign accent, both between 25-30 and around 5ft 8 and 5ft 9 in height.

The thieves used her card in Sainsburys to spend £200.  They knew her pin number as they had watched her enter it in Waitrose for her shopping.

The advice from the police is to remain in the car, drive away to a safe place and then check.  Please be vigilant.

If you have any information on this crime, please report to the police calling 101.
