Car break-ins on rise

Bay of Plenty Times - - Local News -

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.
