Police warnings to secure property falling on deaf ears

CONSTANT police warnings for Rockhampton residents to secure their property doesn't seem to be sinking into everyone's skulls these days.

Tireless warnings from Rockhampton Police have fallen upon deaf ears yet again after a number of unlawful entry incidents last night.

The first was at Koongal last night where a thief entered an unlocked car in Lakes Creek Rd and stole a mobile phone, money and a wallet.

The second incident was in the Stockland Rockhampton carpark, in Yaamba Rd, where thieves entered an unlocked car and stole a wallet and other personal belongings.

In separate incidents last night at Gracemere, a thief broke into a Fisher St house, sometime between midnight and 5am today, and stole a number of items.

Police found the offender at the Gracemere shopping centre a little while later. He will appear in Rockhampton Magistrates Court on a date to be confirmed.

Also in Fisher St last night, a burglar smashed the window of a locked car in Fisher St and stole small valuable items.

Rockhampton Police say they have a suspect.

If you would like to help with these incidents contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
