Central and North Burnett Times - - LOCAL NEWS -

OP­POR­TUNIS­TIC theft is in the fo­cus of Gayn­dah Po­lice.

Crime preven­tion pam­phlets have been dropped into let­ter­boxes around town, to en­sure res­i­dents are vig­i­lant with home se­cu­rity.

The pam­phlets warn thieves tar­get open pa­tios and ve­ran­das for valu­ables and com­monly en­ter prop­er­ties through un­locked doors and win­dows.

Items that thieves pri­ori­tise in­clude lap­tops, cam­eras, mo­bile phones, wal­lets and gam­ing sys­tems.

Sergeant Lu­cas-Hamp­son said “with sum­mer com­ing up, it’s im­por­tant to re­mind res­i­dents not to leave their win­dows open”.

Sgt Hamp­son said he hoped the crime preven­tion pam­phlets would make peo­ple more aware of op­por­tunis­tic prop­erty crime and pro­vide some help­ful tips.
