Camper Van Crime
A worrying trait for motorhome and campervan holidaymakers is the recent increase in campervan crime following a couple being robbed after being gassed while sleeping.
Recently a couple from the UK, holidaying in France, were overcome by gas, fed into the camper van, by thieves, before being robbed of £500 cash, jewellery, passports and bank cards.
Police believe the couple, Debbie Keeney, 54, and partner Bob John, 68, were targeted by Eastern Europeans who are known to target tourists in the area.
This is not the first time that British holidaymakers have been hit. A couple from Hampshire. Mervyn Bryant and his wife Kirsty suffered a similar experience last year in the South of France.
