Car Key Burglary In Rubery
Police are appealing for witnesses and information following a car key burglary in Rubery.
It happened at about 7.25pm last night (Tuesday, 17 April) in Holywell Lane.
The owner had returned home and parked his white Seat Leon Cupra (registration SV51 LEO) on the roadside.
It is thought that the offenders have followed the owner into the house and taken the car keys while he was upstairs. Just moments after he returned home he heard the sound of his car starting up and quickly realised that it had been stolen.
A man driving past stopped and spoke to the owner as he had seen two white males jumping into the car and driving it off at speed.
One is described as slim, with a shaved head and was wearing a blue jacket and the other is stocky and was wearing a black leather jacket.
PC Darren Keyte said: "We would remind residents not to leave keys on show where they can be easily accessed.
"It only takes a few moments for an offender to reach through an open window or door to reach keys and you would be none the wiser until you noticed your car gone.
"We would like to hear from anyone who saw the car being taken or thinks they may have seen it since yesterday evening."
Anyone with information should call PC Keyte on 0300 333 3000, quoting incident 654-S-170412, or call the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
