Car break-ins on rise
Police are urging people to take extra care after an increase in car break-ins in Tauranga. Over the past few months, thieves have been targeting vehicles with items left inside them, including radar detectors. Owners are encouraged to protect their valuables by removing items from vehicles, and police say if items are left unattended, make sure they are out of sight and the vehicle is locked. Park in busy, open and well-lit areas whenever possible.
