30 cars stolen in a weekend

Counties Manukau Police are reminding motorists to take all precautions to avoid their car being stolen, after more than 30 cars were taken in the District between Friday 15 and Sunday 17 May.
District Prevention Manager Inspector Bronwyn Marshall says that while Police are constantly patrolling target areas and the number of stolen cars in the District has recently slightly decreased, it is still essential for the public to understand what they need to do to ensure their car is not stolen.
“When a car is stolen it affects someone’s whole life and their family.
We can’t reiterate enough how important it is that everyone takes responsibility for their valuables and does what they can to ensure they don’t become a target for thieves,” says Inspector Marshall.
“We are consistently seeing reports of cars being stolen after being left unlocked or with valuable items on display. Opportunistic thieves will target vehicles which are easy to steal or have desirable items visible.”
