'Fake baby' used in Bishopsteignton attempted car theft - 5th Feb 2016

Devon police are warning the public to be alert after an attempted car theft.

Teignmouth and Dawlish Neighbourhood Police posted the warning following an incident in Bishopsteignton at approximately midday today.

Describing the incident a spokesperson for the police said: "A male and a female were stopped on the side of the road with a ‘baby’ in a car seat and appeared to be having a domestic incident. A caller stopped to check if everything was OK and noted that the child in the car seat was in fact a doll. Whilst the caller got out of his car, the male attempted to get into his car and drive off. Fortunately, the caller’s car was locked." After the failed car theft the couple left the area very quickly in a blue VW Polo with a registration similar to  W901 YNC
