TOURISTS’ cars are again the tar­get of thieves, with a spate of crimes near the iconic blue boat­shed, op­po­site Park Av­enue.

Sergeant Ian Carter said hand­bags, back­packs and cash were taken from hire cars af­ter their win­dows were smashed dur­ing the af­ter­noon of April 24.

The fol­low­ing day, thieves smashed the win­dows of five cars and took sim­i­lar valu­ables and sev­eral lap­tops at the UWA li­brary carpark on Hackett Drive.

Sergeant Carter said most of the cars be­longed to univer­sity staff be­cause stu­dents were on hol­i­days.
