'Lock your cars,' police urge
A recent spate of thefts from cars on the Peninsula has led Brisbane Water police asking motorists to always lock their vehicles and to remove or hide valuables.
"Stealing from motor vehicles is often an opportunistic crime with thieves checking for unlocked car doors and windows, as well as looking the inside of your vehicle for valuables left lying around in clear sight," they said in a social media post.
"Having your personal items stolen from your car is inconvenient, distressing and can be expensive.
"Stealing from motor vehicles is a crime.
"Always lock up your vehicle, day or night and regardless of whether parked in your driveway, carport or public place.
"Always remove or hide valuables from sight of thieves.
"Do not leave your wallet, keys, phones and valuable electrical items on seats and in the middle consoles.
"If you see someone acting suspiciously, please contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000."
