'Unusual' steering wheel theft took place in Brighton Hill
A CANCER victim has been left without transport after a thief stole the steering wheel to his car.
The thief targeted the 65-year-old's Nissan Micra, disconnected the interior light so not to be seen, and carefully removed the steering wheel.
The theft took place sometime between 10am on Tuesday, September 17 and 12.30pm the next day, when the car was parked outside the man’s home in Headington Close, Brighton Hill.
PC Dave Cook said: “This crime is unusual in that someone seems to have targeted this man’s car specifically.
“It is particularly upsetting for him and his family as it is his only means of transport to get to his appointments for his cancer treatment.”
Anyone with information can contact PC Cook at Basingstoke CID on 101 or call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
