Police investigating Murgon car theft

TWO cars were stolen from the Murgon area on Thursday night.

Murgon Police Senior Sergeant Lance Guteridge said a Hyundai Hatchback and a Land Cruiser ute were stolen.

One the the cars was found in Cherbourg and ute is still missing.

Sgt Guteridge said police were still investigating the matter and had some leads they were following.

He said car owners had made it easy for criminals with keys left in the ignition or on consoles in the car.

"We had two cars stolen which resulted in four evade police offences when they evaded police," he said.

"We are requesting that people make sure they don't leave the key in the ignition, don't make it easily accessible for criminals.

Sgt Guteridge said he encouraged residents to become a member of Murgon Neighbourhood Watch, and report any suspicious activity to the Murgon Police Station which is attended every 24 hours.

"We are appealing to the public to report any suspicious activity, we want to make sure we don't make it easy for these people to steal cars or property," he said.

"Being a member of neighbourhood watch you are not only able to help prevent crime, but help police solve crime and if the community works with police it can make it difficult for people to make these offences.

To report a crime in Murgon phone 41795222.
