Local stolen vehicle hot spots
32 vehicles were stolen in the month of December 2019, one per day.
See the map below for the hotspots where the vehicles were stolen from.
It seems they target older vehicles, especially UTE's.
The majority of stolen vehicles showed no signs of forced entry, indicating they may have not been locked.
Tips to keep your vehicle safe:
1 Lock your vehicle! Even if it is old.
2 Park your vehicle in a garage if possible, and lock that too!
3 If you have to park it on the street, park it in a well-lit area, maybe under a street light.
4 Consider fitting a immobiliser or a steering lock.
5 CCTV cameras and security lights are a great deterrent.
