Main article content
Officers from our Local Policing teams and Stolen Vehicle Intelligence Unit (SVIU) are appealing for witnesses and urging people to stay vigilant, following reports that cars belonging to healthcare staff were stolen from outside their place of work.
Over the course of one week, we received two reports of keys being taken from the pocket of a victim’s coat stored for their shift and used to steal their car from the car park outside their workplace.
The first incident occurred at Deal Tree Health Centre in Blackmore Road, Doddinghurst, between 8.45am and 11.53am on Wednesday 7 April. A grey Ford Galaxy, registration CE68 MEV, was taken.
The second incident happened at Waltham Abbey Health Centre in Sewardstone Road, Waltham Abbey, between 10.30am and 1.30pm on Tuesday 13 April. A grey BMW X3 was taken from outside the premises, registration GJ62 FLM.
Both vehicles are still outstanding and our enquiries are ongoing.
If you saw anyone acting suspiciously, either of the vehicles being taken from the area, or may have dashcam footage of the vehicle being driven throughout the district during or after the above time periods, please contact us.
