There have been a number of car burglaries in Waiuku over the past few weeks and Police are warning Franklin residents not to leave valuables inside their cars.
Phones, iPads, laptops, wallets and jewellery are some of the items left in vehicles that are then targeted being by thieves.
Sergeant Graeme Wood from Waiuku Police says, “People shouldn’t leave valuables in their cars overnight, even if they’re parked in driveways.”
He says despite vehicles being on your property, it doesn’t mean your valuables are safe. He urges people to bring them inside instead.
