No rest for the wicked

You'd think after a busy week nicking motors, your standard car thief would put his or her feet up over the weekend. But research has shown that Saturday is the most popular day with car thieves. And Sunday proved to be the day most likely for car break-ins, so while most respectable citizens are at church or watching the Grand Prix, thieves may be hard at work trying to snatch the sunglasses you left on your car's dashboard.

Research from Elephant.co.uk showed that the most popular items of swag were sat-navs. CDs were also popular with the crooks – even more so than iPods in fact which were third on the list.

It's always a good idea to keep valuable items out of view, so as not to give potential robbers any ideas. Safety first.
