KEYINGHAM: Theft of vehicles

Alert message sent 21/11/2021 17:01:00

Information sent on behalf of Humberside Police

Vehicle badges stolen

Sometime from 7pm and overnight of Friday 19th November 2021 a number of vehicles parked in Keyingham had the vehicles badges prised off and removed.

The thefts in Keyingham village areas saw a BMW 3 Series parked on Waudy Garth Villas, a Mercedes parked on Seymour Road, a Suzuki Swift parked on Eastfield Road and a Chevrolet Cruze parked on Owst Road among the vehicles targeted.
Police today said they were keeping an “open mind” over whether the badges were being stolen as part of a new teen fad as they appealed for any other victims to come forward. PCSO Darren Bainton said “Back when this was a craze in the 1980s with the Beastie Boys, kids would wear them around their necks so stealing them was literally a badge of honour. I’m not aware of any fashion for doing that now so it would seem to be just collecting.
Police have appealed for parents to keep an eye out for car badges which may have been taken by their children turning up around their homes, urging them to contact police if any are found.

If you are also a victim to a theft please report it through 101 or our website. If you know who is responsible or any information about these thefts call the Police on 101 with investigations 16/114883/21
