Stolen Range Rover Evoque Recovered in Knights Way, Dartford: Vigilant Citizen Aids Police

Authorities have successfully recovered a stolen Range Rover Evoque from a residential area in Knights Way, Dartford. The vehicle was discovered by a vigilant member of the public and reported to the police earlier today.

According to data from the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA), Range Rovers are one of the most commonly stolen cars in Britain, with a staggering 5,533 models being taken in 2022 alone. The only car with a higher theft rate was the Ford Fiesta, with 5,979 reported thefts.

Thieves have been known to exploit new keyless technology to steal these coveted vehicles, as they hold a high resale value in the black market. In response to this trend, Jaguar Land Rover, the manufacturer of Range Rover, recently announced plans to invest “several hundreds of thousands of pounds” to assist in strengthening policing at UK container ports. This move aims to prevent criminal gangs from exporting stolen vehicle parts or whole Range Rovers in containers.

The police have been contacted for further details on the recovered vehicle and the ongoing investigation.
