Over the past few weeks Bribie Island police have received a number of calls from members of the community whose homes have been broken into.

Retirement homes and houses along the canals have been targeted in these latest offences where money, electronic devices, jewellery and vehicles have been stolen.

Entry is being gained through unlocked doors and windows or by cutting the fly screen and unlocking doors from inside.

Police are urging residents to ensure that your houses are secure and take measures to secure your valuables.

If you have CCTV cameras or an alarm ensure that they are in working order and make your neighbours aware if you are going away.

Vehicles are regularly stolen from houses using the keys which have either been left in the vehicle or have been stolen from inside the residence.

Don’t leave your keys on a table, kitchen bench, beside table, key hooks within your house – keep them out of site.
