Thames Valley Police want to speak to these three men in connection to an attempted car theft in Milton Keynes

Staff investigator David Graham, based at Milton Keynes police station said: “There have been a number of attempts recently in the area whereby offenders have used electronic devices to try and steal high value cars.

“I strongly advise people to keep their car keys away from the external walls of the house, do not keep your keys near the front door or a window. If possible, keep the central locking car keys in a metal container away from the external walls to prevent any signal grabbing device from copying your car key code.

“I believe the people in these images may have information that would help with our investigation. If you recognise them, or believe it could be you, please get in touch.

“If you have any information, please call us on 101 or report online with reference number 43210097364.

“Alternatively, if you wish to remain 100% anonymous you can call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.”
