Despite these incidents Sgt Stewart Day said the weekend was a fairly quiet one for police.

"It was a pretty good weekend for the Warwick area as we have seen a decrease in the amount of break and entries following a few arrests," he said.

However residents are warned to remain vigilant with their property and remember to lock up over the school holiday.

"Police will be out in force during the school break," Sgt Day said.

Those travelling away for holidays are reminded to rest every two hours and service their car before departing.

"We recommend people don't leave for a long journey on the Friday after work," Sgt Day said.

He suggests people leave the Saturday morning once they are rested for the journey.

"We have had a terrible started to the road toll already this year so we need people to remain focused on the road over this period," he said.
