Joy-riding thieves destroy Angus family’s sense of security in brazen overnight raid

An ex-Commando has spoken of his shock and anger after callous thieves took two prestige cars from the family s Carnoustie driveway in an audacious overnight raid. Calum Owens black Range Rover Evoque and his wife s Audi Q5 Quattro were taken from their Anderson Place home in Carnoustie overnight on Thursday. They were later found badly damaged and abandoned in Dundee.

The damaged Range Rover

Mixed martial arts trainer Mr Owens said his Range Rover may be written off because of the damage it has sustained, with the other car also requiring repairs likely to run into four figures. And he condemned the culprits who he said had destroyed the family s sense of peace and security just months after moving into a new home. The privately-registered cars, both black, had been parked outside the couple s home before being taken sometime between 11.30pm on Thursday and 3am the following morning.

They broke in via the front door, got the keys and have hit the jackpot as far as they were concerned, said 38-year-old Mr Owens.

In one sense we re lucky that s as far as they got, but they have taken the sense of security and safety away from us as a family.

I m a light sleeper but I never heard anything.

The first I heard was when police knocked on the door at around 4am after a neighbour reported vehicles haring about.

Police recovered the cars in Dundee s Balgowan Avenue within hours, but both bear the heavy scars of the crooks off-roading exploits.

Joy-riding Thieves Destroy Angus Family's Sense Of Security In Brazen Overnight Raid

The Range Rover has extensive damage to its suspension and may be written off and the Audi has suffered damage to its alloys, but may be more badly damaged than that, said Mr Owens.

It s in the hands of the insurance company now but I am just so upset and angry that someone could do this.

It is beyond me why someone would want to do this to someone, I cannot understand it . My wife is very upset, we all are. Scenes of crime officers were at the couple s house yesterday to search for forensic evidence which might lead them to the culprits.

A Police Scotland spokesperson said: Police continue to make enquiries into the incident and to trace those responsible.

Anyone who was in the area of Anderson Place, Carnoustie or Balgowan Avenue, Dundee and saw or heard any suspicious activity is asked to contact Police Scotland on 101.

Alternatively information can be passed to the charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.

We would again urge residents to remember the importance of car and home security and we issue the following advice:

Keep car and house keys in a secure place inside your home, away from the front door and out of sight, not on display on a hook, table or other furnishing, where they may be easily seen and taken.

Make sure windows and doors are locked, don t leave an open invitation for thieves to enter and make a quick grab for car or house keys.

Never leave your car unattended with the keys in it .

Particularly in cold weather, when it might be tempting to leave your car running whilst the windscreen and windows defrost.

It s preferable to keep your vehicles in a locked garage, however if you are parking on the street or in a driveway, consider parking in a well-lit area and consider whether there is CCTV coverage.

Look out for your neighbours and report any suspicious activity to Police Scotland.

Wearing a shiny light brown jacket and using a pair of metallic crutches, one migrant struggles to evade security personnel as he attempts to escape the Jungle in Calais.

Photographed late last night, this migrant was seen hopping down the train tracks, determined to reach the Eurotunnel and achieve his ambition of reaching the UK.

Hot in his injured heels, two other migrants, their faces obscured by hoodies, follow close behind him in the latest break-in attempt.

The route is dangerous and difficult, with the high fence topped with razor wire and security patrols checking the area.

Usually late in the night, migrants attempt the journey, following the train tracks towards the long tunnel entrance.

Once they arrive at the entrance, migrants search for possible space to hide in between or underneath trains heading to the UK.

The photographs of late night’s migrant movements come as workmen began construction of a new fence near the Euro tunnel entrance.

The fine wire fence appears to about ten foot high with workers using a digger to complete the structure which will house the lorry compound in Calais.

Increased security measures, including the deployment of additional security personnel, dog units and reinforced fencing has led to the dramatic decline.

The latest migrant break out come as the number of migrants trying to enter the Eurotunnel have fallen from 2,000 an at the end of last month to just 150 a night.

As a sign of its commitment to curbing the number of migrants trying to cross the Channel, the UK has pledged 7 million to bolster security at the crucial terminal.

More than 40 migrants reportedly suffocated in the hold of a boat in a failed attempt to sail the treacherous route from Libya to Italy.

Coastal authorities said they discovered the dead migrants inside the locked hold . It is thought diesel fumes may have been responsible for the tragedy.

Officials estimate that as many as 250,000 migrants have crossed by boat from countries like Libya and Turkey to reach the shores of Europe.

Trouble continues to be brewing in Calais as French police were stoned by a mob of migrants at a camp near Dunkirk.

The officers has been chasing suspected British people smugglers who were carrying two men in their car boot when they were attacked.

The driver of the UK-registered Audi A4 and his passenger reportedly fled into woods, followed by a pair who clambered out of the back of the vehicle.

The incident occurred on Sunday evening at a camp populated by 200 migrants at Grande-Synthe, a suburb of Dunkirk.

It comes days after a shoot-out blamed on crime gangs left an Iraqi man wounded in nearby Teteghem.

Both camps are said to be controlled by British people smugglers who use high-powered cars to transport migrants to motorway rest areas where they are put lorries bound for the UK.

On Sunday, the Audi sped off from a French squad car after being stopped near the Belgian border, before reportedly trying to ram its pursuer.

The car was then spotted hurtling towards at Grande Synthe, shouting ‘Police ! Police!’ as a warning to the residents of the camp, before the four men disappeared into woods.

Fifteen migrants then began hurling rocks at the police car, until reinforcements arrived to help disperse the group with tear gas.

It remains unclear if the suspected British smugglers were eventually detained, but four men with links to the UK were arrested last week.

The suspected smugglers – said to be connected to British addresses and using British-registered vehicles including luxury cars are accused of being part of a dangerous gang based at Teteghem.

A Home Office spokesman said: ‘We are working closely with the French authorities to deal with the situation in northern France.

‘We are increasing joint intelligence work to target the organised crime gangs behind people smuggling and the NCA, along with Border Force and Immigration Enforcement, continue to work closely with French (OCRIEST) counterparts.’
