Thieves target cars in Canberra’s south

Share Canberra's trusted news:

A SPATE of thefts from cars in Canberra’s south has police reminding people to remove all valuables from their cars at night.

Between Thursday May 10 to Sunday May 13, 11 cars were broken into from a number of suburbs in Tuggeranong, including Isabella Plains, Kambah, Monash, Chisholm, Fadden, Gordon and Richardson.

Car windows were smashed and items stolen included GPS, iPods, cash and wallets. Some of the cars had their steering column removed and wires were found loose in an attempt to steal the car.

Officer-In-Charge of Tuggeranong Police Station, Sgt Daryl Neit, asks for car owners to remove all valuables from their cars when they get home of an evening.

“If people remove their valuables from their cars of an evening, their car is less likely to become a target for thieves. Most crimes are ones of opportunity,” Sgt Neit said.

“I would urge anyone who sees or hears suspicious activity in their neighbourhood to call police on 131-444 or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.”
