I received this email directly from a police officer in Pinner. It is NOT a hoax.
Dear Pinner & Pinner South Neighbourhood Watch Co-Ordinators,
As some of you are unfortunately aware, there has been a spate of alloy wheel thefts in the Pinner area over the last few months
In order to counter this, we have put together some crime prevention advice in the shape of a flier…
Furthermore, this flier allows you a 10% discount on a locking wheel nuts product at Halfords Harrow
The thieves are targeting higher end luxury cars – particularly BMWs, Minis, Mercedes & Audis
We are aiming to disseminate the fliers through Neighbourhood Watch Co-Ordinators like yourself
If you believe residents on your ward are vulnerable to this type of crime, please collect your fliers from Pinner on a Friday morning. Alternatively, you are free to print off your own
We hope this initiative will help. Please spread the word!

I hope that you have not been affected by this form of crime, or any other for that matter. Please pass this on to residents in Harrow.
If you are unsure about whether this is happening elsewhere, find out from YOUR Safer Neighbourhood team.
I have written about the information above which was given to the residents of Pinner. I have not made assumptions about where else it may or may not be occurring.
