BMW and Mercedes badges stolen from vehicles

Police are urging BMW and Mercedes car owners to be vigilant after a spate of badges were stolen across Telford.

Over the past three weeks police have received a number of reports that the logo badges had been taken from the front of the vehicle. In some instances the car had been broken into and the badge from the steering wheel taken.

Officers are reminding people to be vigilant and report any suspicious activity to police. 

Detective Sergeant Lee Medlam said: "If anyone sees anyone hanging around a vehicle, in particular a BMW or Mercedes, we'd urge them to let us know and with the clocks going back this weekend and on set of darker nights it is always good advice to try and park in well-lit areas if possible to help prevent thieves acting in the cover of darkness."

To report information to police ring 101.
