Old Model Mercedes Targeted By Car Thieves
Residents report number of thefts from roads in Chiswick
Older models of Mercedes appear to have been targeted by car thieves after a number of thefts from Chiswick roads were reported to Police.
A Strand on the Green resident said, "I had my Mercedes Benz E220 Estate W124 Model stolen from Hearne Road on 22nd July at about 2.00am." The blue car with a leather interior had the registration plate L176 RGW.
The same resident said that he knew of two similar vehicles that we were also stolen the same evening.
After reading about the thefts on the ChiswickW4.com forum, a Bedford Park resident said that he too had had his 'much-loved' Mercedes E320 Estate stolen on June 30th from Priory Avenue. The green car with a beige interior had the registration plate N162 NGT.
Just over a week later another 'much loved' Mercedes Estate with the registration plate F216 KGH was stolen from outside a house in Addison Grove. The car was navy blue with a navy interior.
Chiswick Police confirmed that the vehicles were all still missing but declined to comment on where they could be.
