Suburb urged to lock up as police alerted to crime
A COAST police station has received multiple reports of thefts from cars and suspicious behaviour within the area.
In the last few weeks several offences have been brought to the attention of Sippy Downs Police.
The station is reminding residents in the area about the importance of securing cars and homes at all times.
Sippy Downs Police Officer in Charge Sergeant Brett Young said residents should never leave their vehicles unlocked, even if they are parked in their own driveways.
“The recent reports are a timely reminder about the importance of securing your vehicle and removing valuables from cars, even when they’re parked at home,” Sergeant Young said.
It is important to always lock vehicles and remove valuables, even when they are parked at home, in driveways or on the street:
- Lock garages; do not have valuables on display, especially in open garages where the roller door is left up
- Secure property, including bicycles
- Report any suspicious activity to police
