Crimes of op­por­tu­nity

Whitsunday Times - - LOCAL NEWS -

ACT­ING sergeant Nathan Blain is urg­ing Whit­sun­day res­i­dents to lock their cars af­ter a spate of re­ported thefts.

Sgt Blain de­scribed the thefts as “crimes of op­por­tu­nity”, from cars that were mainly un­locked and had prop­erty on dis­play.

“I am urg­ing ev­ery­one to lock their ve­hi­cles when unat­tended and keep valu­ables out of site,” he said.

“Th­ese sim­ple mea­sures will stop the crimes from oc­cur­ring.”
