Hinckley Police is advising motorists to stop their vehicle with a second vehicle when they leave their vehicle overnight.

They are also urging anyone with advanced technology to invest in a special filling to prevent theft.

Another tip from the police is that drivers should use the old-fashioned steering lock on the steering wheel.

Another suggestion is that people use RFID wallets, which are made of metal and can intercept electrical signals.

There are many ways to steal a car without a key, from hacking the car’s computer or stealing the key signal to simply breaking into the house and stealing the car keys.

Employees posted online that there had been an increase in incidents around Hinckley, Blaby, Cosby, Earl Shilton and Stoney Stanton.
