Gangs stealing LED lights from Range Rovers to grow cannabis
Police reports indicate that criminal gangs are stripping LED lights from luxury Range Rovers and using them to grow illegal drugs.
Police have issued a warning to luxury car owners reporting a spate of thefts of headlights from Land Rover and Range Rover models, which are then sold to drug dealers who use them to help grow cannabis.
This problem has become so bad in some parts of the UK that police have launched an operation to advise car owners how best to protect their vehicles from thieves.
- Expensive LED lights targeted by criminals in spate of thefts across the UK
- My car’s front grill and headlights were taken ‘in 30 seconds’, say a victim
- One theory is that the powerful lights are being used to grow cannabis
- Parts could also be stolen to fit to other vehicles, police say – but the number of thefts indicate alternative motives
- Owners call on manufacturers Land Rover to make grills harder to remove
