Burglar steals phone while resident in shower
IT WAS a case of wrong place at the right time for a Cannonvale resident, who was in the shower when a burglar struck last month.
On August 30, just after 4pm, a resident of Cassia Crt was taking a shower while a second resident was watching television in the bedroom.
Whitsunday police reported that during this time, a burglar entered the house through an unlocked door and stole an Apple iPhone 8 from the lounge room then left without being seen or heard.
Police have asked that nearby residents who may have witnessed suspicious activity or have any information contact the Whitsunday Police Station.
Senior Constable Steve Smith said this incident highlighted the importance of keeping doors locked and being aware of home security during the day as well as at night.
“We are used to reading and hearing about burglary offences occurring during the hours of darkness,” he said.
“This is a timely reminder that this is not always the case.”
