Don't gift your keys to thieves
OVER the Easter long weekend, there were some vehicles stolen in the Mackay District.
These offences occurred across a wide geographical area.
The types of vehicles that were stolen were various shapes and sizes.
Some of the vehicles have been recovered and will be written off due to the damage caused by the thieves.
Last week, there was an increase in the number of unlocked cars that were being entered and small items were being stolen.
The thieves have one intention and that is to quickly find a set of car keys and then quickly get away.
Sergeant Nigel Dalton from the Mackay Crime Prevention Unit said preventing this type of crime is all to do with where we leave our vehicle keys.
“Look after your car keys, and don’t gift your keys to the thieves,” he said.
