So last night I got home from work around 6.10pm. At around 6.15pm, I received an alert on my phone from my CCTV system that there was motion on my driveway. I opened the video clip it sent me and there is 4 masked guys, hoods etc walking across my driveway. The security light comes on and they try to hide either side of it. They try my front door (porch door with anti snap lock) and realise it's locked. They then look at my car and notice the steering wheel lock on it, before disappearing. On the video clip I have I can hear them muttering something about the locks and saying "F*** it'. I call the police straight away, tell them what has happened and they dispatch a car straight away. Luckily I live around 5 minutes from a police station. About 6-7 mins later I see the patrol car by my house, doing laps of the cul-de-sac I live in and main road. Half an hour later, the police call and say they want to come and see the CCTV and find out what happened. When they arrive, it turns out they received another call from a house around half a mile away of an attempted car jacking of a Golf R. A young lady with 2 young kids in the back. Somehow she held them off until the neighbours ran out and scared them off. This happened in the Sutton Coldfield area of West Midlands. It goes to show that deterrents do work. I have anti snap locks, steering wheel lock, security lights, CCTV, alarm system and sash jammers on windows. The only thing I don't have is security posts. However, none of this matters if they are going to car jack you as the poor lady round the corner found out. Wanted to share my experience to urge you all (especially at this time of year) to up your security and stay vigilant. We all work hard to drive nice cars, yet some people are so brazen they will do anything they can to take it from you.
