A black Mercedes GLC 63 AMG similar to this stolen by thieves

Detectives are appealing for information following the report of a high value vehicle theft from the Ayrshire Park area of Lisburn in the early hours of this morning, Tuesday, March 22.

The Mercedes GLC 63 AMG are valued around £70,000.

Detective Inspector Bell said: “At approximately 4am, we received a report that a black Mercedes GLC 63 AMG car, which was parked outside the owner’s property, had been stolen.

“The vehicle was locked and the owner still had both sets of keys.

“Our enquiries are underway and I am appealing to anyone who may have seen anyone or any suspicious vehicles in the area, who may have dash-cam or CCTV footage or who knows the whereabouts of the car to call us on 101, quoting reference number 93 of 22/03/22.

“Alternatively, information can also be provided to the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 which is 100% anonymous and gives people the power to speak up and stop crime.

“We are urging vehicle owners to be vigilant, especially those with keyless entry cars.

“With advances in technology, thieves are now able to gain access to your vehicle by redirecting the wireless signal from your key fob.

“Motor vehicles are extremely expensive, and owners should take the same precautions as they do with home security. Where possible, keep your car in a garage or lock your driveway gates

“Establish a routine to help keep your vehicle safe, including using your garage if available to secure your vehicle.

“Use physical car locks such as steering column locks and chains, as well as keeping all car keys (including spares) away from exterior doors and walls.

“Motorists are also advised to use a blocking pouch also called a Faraday pouch (lined with metallic material) to help block the wireless signal from your key fob.”
