Crimes of opportunity
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.”
