Opportunistic theft prevention

Police are again urging locals to make sure they're not victims of opportunistic thefts. 

Mildura officers say thieves look for valuables in unlocked vehicles, garages or sheds, or even a purse left unattended in a shopping trolley for just a few moments.

They say making things harder, such as locking cars and garages, and even installing sensor lights around the home can reduce the chance of being a victim of theft.
