Police urge residents to lock up against brazen thieves

WARWICK residents are being urged to keep their property secure after a spate of break-ins earlier this week.

Police received a number of calls on Wednesday morning in relation to businesses and private properties being targeted by thieves.

A CBD barber shop was broken into by thieves who used a window to enter the property sometime overnight on Tuesday.

Warwick police Senior Constable Jeremy Lambert said hairdressing gear, including scissors and clippers, was taken.

Sometime overnight on the same evening, a Toyota Dyna truck was taken from Downs Cooling and Heating in Grafton St.

The vehicle was recovered parked in the bus zone outside Warwick State High School yesterday afternoon.

Snr Const Lambert said he understood the truck was not damaged.

A Rangers Rd property was also targeted the same evening. A shed was broken into and a vehicle damaged.

Snr Const Lambert said nothing was taken in the break-in.

It is understood the buildings and truck were locked at the time of the incidents, but Snr Const Lambert urged people to remain cautious.

"We want to remind people to keep their businesses and vehicles locked and limit the opportunities for thieves to steal your property," he said.

Warwick police are hoping to speak with anyone who may have any information on any of the break-ins.

If you have any information please phone Warwick Police on 4660 4444 or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
