Lock it or you might lose it

EMERALD police have warned residents about a recent rise in the number of opportunistic break-ins to parked motor vehicles.

Acting officer-in-charge Sergeant Terry McCullough said there had been a rise in the number of thefts from unlocked cars in recent days.

"They are not forcing their way in there, what we're finding is that it's happening around town to cars left unlocked in the street," he said.

Police are also investigating an incident of motor vehicle vandalism that took place sometime during the early hours of Saturday, December 10.

At least nine motor vehicles parked on Cominos St, Garnet St and Saffola Pl had their number plates ripped off. A letter box was also destroyed.

Police are seeking information as investigations continue.
