We're all guilty of this!

Valuables Stolen From Townsville Car With Window Slightly Down NOTE: Image is not car from incident

Police are urging all residents to be vigilant with the security of their property.

Ensuring homes and vehicles are locked and properly secured will decrease your likelihood of becoming a victim of an opportunistic crime.

One habit that we need to kick ASAP is leaving the windows in our car slightly down. 

Whether it's to keep the car a little cooler, or to get some fresh air into the car while it's parked- we need to stop. 

An opportunist crim has run away with cash, credit cards, ID, a uniform, and wallet from a car in Cook Street. 

The North Ward attack was made easier by the car having the window left slight down. 

If you have information for police, contact Policelink on 131 444 or provide information using the online form 24hrs per day.

You can report information about crime anonymously to Crime Stoppers, a registered charity and community volunteer organisation, by calling 1800 333 000 or via crimestoppersqld.com.au 24hrs per day.
