OVER the past two weeks, Canberra’s south has been hit hard by a string of break-ins.
Police report vehicles were smashed into in the Molonglo Valley, Weston Creek and Woden areas. But, they say, some of the vehicles were left unlocked.
Items, which police typically see stolen from vehicles include cash, electronic devices, garage remotes, house keys, sunglasses and wallets.
They say vehicle thefts are often opportunistic crimes where unsecure cars or cars containing valuable items are attractive targets, and are reminding people to remove all valuables from their car and ensure the car is locked and secure before leaving their car parked.
Anyone who has not yet reported a damaged vehicle is urged to call police on 131 444 but for those with information or CCTV footage around the recent break-ins are asked to call 1800 333000, or report via the Crime Stoppers ACT website.
