HOT SPOTS: Kingaroy’s worst streets for break-ins

THROUGHOUT the past 12 months, 80 unlawful entry charges were laid in the wider Kingaroy area, according to data from the Queensland Police Service.

The majority of offences occurred on a Friday between 2pm and 10pm, followed by Sunday between 10pm and 6am.

Police recently issued a warning to South Burnett residents, reminding locals that criminals often take advantage of the warmer weather to commit offences, knowing people will leave doors and windows open and unlocked.

This came as Kingaroy saw three break and enters in just 24 hours last week, leaving an elderly couple shaken after a stranger entered their home and took a knife from the kitchen.
