I posted this on the SE23Life forum and was asked to post it here too (I wasn’t a member of this one or I would have already)
If anyone uses Lower Sydenham station and parks their car in Kangley Bridge Road (which has no parking restrictions) near Screwfix, please note that every day someone is stealing parts off cars parked along there. Yesterday there was a car with both rear lights stolen, a man whose front grill was hanging off and I think a headlight gone - couldn’t see because he was taking photos of the damage and another with rear bumper gone. This has been going on for months and months. I picked up a Zipcar VW Polo there a few weeks back and someone had taken the wing mirror covers off of that. I’ve seen dozens of cars along there with parts stolen so beware. These lights cost a fortune hence stealing them is big business.
