Unlocked door makes easy target for brazen crims
RESIDENTS across Rockhampton are once again being urged to lock up properly as relaxed homeowners continue to make their properties vulnerable to crime.
Queensland Police say it was the same careless behaviour which allowed for an unknown number of offenders to enter a Cant St property at Kawana between September 16 and 17.
However, the offender was not required to break into the property as its occupants mistakenly left its downstairs door unlocked.
It was understood access was gained through the closed, though unsecure door before emptying out ashtrays inside the residence.
The offender/s have then allegedly moved onto and entered a shed located in the rear yard.
In a separate incident that same night, unknown offenders have attempted to gain entry into a Beak St unit at Koongal.
Fortunately, no damage was incurred, or property stolen.
However, it was a different story for the owners of a vehicle which was broken into on Farm St, Kawana.
An unknown number of offenders entered the vehicle, stealing both keys and a pair of sunglasses.
No damaged was sustained to the vehicle during the incident.
