Police concerned at the number of break and enters
POLICE are appealing to home owners in the Ipswich, Goodna, Springfield and surrounding areas to ensure their house and property is secure at all times after a number of recent break and enters.
Many of these offences have involved unlocked or unsecured doors and windows that opportunistic thieves have taken advantage of.
With current high temperatures, if you leave your doors or windows open, ensure that they are security locked or have screens fitted to them.
By ensuring doors and windows are locked and by keeping sought after items such as phones, jewellery, wallets and cameras out of sight, each member of the community can help prevent this from occurring.
In addition, please consider keeping your vehicle keys in a secure location, as some offenders are gaining access to vehicle keys during break and enters, resulting in vehicles being stolen.
Neighbours can play a big role in preventing these offences by keeping an eye out for each other, assisting with mail collection for those who are away and placing rubbish bins out at the usual collection time.
Anyone with information which could assist with this matter should contact Crime Stoppers anonymously via 1800 333 000 or crimestoppers.com.au 24hrs a day.
