WEST Midlands Police have issued a warning after a spate of Range Rover thefts across the region.

Officers from WMP Traffic posted this picture on social media, adding it took just 40 seconds for a thief to drive it away.

They added luckily that Range Rover was fitted with a tracker so it was found within minutes and the driver was caught red-handed trying to remove the device and was arrested.

Owners of Range Rovers are being urged to add extra security measures to their vehicles, such as steering locks and immobilisers.
