Two Essex men have been charged with conspiracy to steal a motor vehicle after a Range Rover was taken in Bishop's Stortford.

The keyless car was stolen from the driveway of a house in Pine Grove, between Thorn Grove and Warwick Road, in the early hours of Monday (June 20) and recovered in Essex later the same day by Hertfordshire police officers.

Det Sgt Phill Collingridge, of the East Herts Local Crime Unit, said: “Some excellent proactive police work resulted in two men being arrested and a high-value stolen vehicle being located and recovered on the same day it was taken.

“I want this to serve as reassurance to residents that we will track down those who cause harm to our communities.”

* Tomas Girdenis, 24, of Salisbury Avenue, Barking, and Martynas Siaulys, 20, of Argent Street, Grays, were both charged with conspiracy to steal a motor vehicle and were due to appear at St Albans Magistrates' Court on Wednesday (June 22).

In a separate incident, police made four arrests and recovered the vehicle undamaged when a Range Rover was stolen from a driveway in Sawbridgeworth overnight on Monday June 13.

If you own a keyless vehicle, take these steps to protect it...

  • Keep vehicle keys in a signal-blocking pouch which stops the signal from your key. You can purchase police-approved ‘Secured By Design’ signal-blocking pouches here: www.securedbydesign.com

  • Keep keys away from the front of your property; either upstairs and/or hidden is preferable
  • Check your manual or with your dealer to see if it is possible to switch off the key’s signal
  • For additional security, consider purchasing a steering wheel lock
