Careless owners' cars broken into
A NUMBER of cars were broken into on Wednesday night prompting police to urge residents to ensure their wheels are kept safe and secure.
Two cars in Torquay were broken into in the early hours of the morning.
A phone was removed from one car in Exeter Street and another car in Tavistock Street had a GPS removed from the console.
Another car in Urangan was also broken into.
In two of the cases the windows of the cars were left slightly open.
Senior Constable Lynette Nelis from the Hervey Bay Police Station said the break-ins were a “timely reminder” for car owners to ensure vehicles were locked up when left outside.
“Police are asking that people don’t leave valuables in their car as it provides temptation to local offenders as they walk by,” she said
