There have been 10 recorded stealings from cars since the weekend.

Inspector Paul Johnson said in all 10 cases, the drivers had left their vehicles unlocked.

“Taking personal accountability for your private property cannot be overstated,” Inspector Johnson said.

“This is a crime of opportunity and that’s what the community is giving them.”

In one incident, three vehicles at the same property were left unlocked and an offender rifled through them, stealing some items in the process.

On Monday a firearm and ammunition were also taken from a vehicle parked at a motel in Conadilly St.

Inspector Johnson said police were following up on several leads in relation to the thefts.

But he said people needed to be accountable for their own property.

“These miscreants are taking advantage of the relaxed approached that the community has,” he said.

“Police can’t be held to account when people leave their cars unlocked.”
