LOCK UP: Six thefts in Kingaroy across four days

KINGAROY police are calling on South Burnett residents to lock their homes and store their car keys somewhere out of view from windows.

This advice follows six robberies in Kingaroy across four days, from last Friday to Monday.

Between 9.30pm on Sunday and 4.30am on Monday, offenders allegedly entered a tent on Walter Rd, stole car keys and broke into the car.

A bank card was stolen from the car before being used at McDonald’s and Ryke Fuel.

Residents of a Haly St house woke at 2.30am on Monday to their dog barking but didn’t realise until daybreak the pet had been trying to alert them to thieves.

Offenders allegedly entered the house through an open sliding door and stole two mobile phones and a laptop.

In a separate offence, the window of a car was smashed and gift cards and personal accessories were stolen after thieves allegedly entered a garage at a Fitzroy St residence through an unlocked door.

The goods were stolen between 7pm on October 20 and 8am on Monday.

Offenders entered a Kingaroy St address through an open door and stole a purse with personal identification inside.

Between 1am on Sunday and 8am on Monday, thieves forced a sliding door open to enter an Albert St address.

Nothing was stolen from the address but police found the purse stolen earlier from Kingaroy St.

Two rings, a Samsung tablet, video games and seven bottles of alcohol were stolen from an Oasis St address between 6pm on October 18 and 5.30pm on Monday.

Offenders entered by pushing in a security screen and forcing a latch on a window.

Investigations are continuing into each offence.
