Thieves use transmitter in car theft

A WHITEFIELD man has hit out at Greater Manchester Police after his car was stolen using a transmitter.

Anthony Harris claimed that the police were “more interested in arresting people for having 10 people round at Rosh Hashana” than dealing with his case.

When his black and white convertible Mercedes was stolen by two thieves, he alerted police to the high-quality CCTV footage he had of them carrying out the act — but claims he was told they were too busy to watch it.

The vehicle was stolen from the drive of his home at 4.18am on Tuesday last week.

The thieves used a transmitter and amplifier pressed against a porch window, allowing them to steal the car in just one minute.
