Whitsunday Times - - LOCAL NEWS -

OF­FI­CER in Charge of the Whit­sun­day Po­lice Sta­tion, Act­ing Se­nior Sergeant Brad Teys, is warn­ing lo­cal res­i­dents to lock up their cars.

The warn­ing comes af­ter a num­ber of thefts from ve­hi­cles in re­cent weeks.

Some time af­ter 5.30am on April 1, there was an at­tempted theft of a mo­tor­cy­cle from the car park at Shute Har­bour.

Act Snr Sgt Teys said an un­known per­son or people tried to force the ig­ni­tion on the mo­tor­cy­cle. He said a 2005 white Holden Com­modore was seen in the area at the time and po­lice were mak­ing en­quiries about that.

Be­tween 9pm on April 3 and 7am on April 4 a soft-top Jeep Wran­gler was bro­ken into on Shute Har­bour Road at Cannonvale. Property be­long­ing to the Jeep’s 23-year-old owner was stolen.

“There’s been a few steal from ve­hi­cle of­fences so we would ask people to be vig­i­lant in lock­ing or se­cur­ing their ve­hi­cles and also se­cur­ing all valu­ables,” Act Snr Sgt Teys said.
