As the temperature gets hotter and Christmas approaches, the risk of ‘easy pickings’ by offenders will increase, both in homes and cars. Whether you are at home or not, only leave windows and doors with security screens open. Sneak thefts always increase over summer as people try to catch whatever cool breeze is available, and the criminals will use open doors as invitations.
If you see potential criminal activity, please contact police or Crimestoppers and pass the information on. A local resident saw two cars acting suspiciously at Movieworld last and obtained photos and contacted me. Both cars were stolen and involved in several burglaries between Brisbane and the Gold Coast. The information we developed has helped to link offences together for investigators.
