    According to investigators, homes in Boston, Gosport, Maude, Auburn, Boland and Tycannah streets in Moree have been hit by thieves, as well as rural properties on the outskirts of town.

    Barwon crime manager, Detective Inspector David Silversides, said while small items were usually stolen, gaming consoles, jewellery, notebook computers, wallets and handbags had been the latest targets taken by thieves.

    “Opportunistic thieves are quick to take advantage of unlocked homes and vehicles,” he said.

    “Residents need to be aware of their surroundings and be mindful of their personal security.”

    Detective Inspector Silversides said victims were often unaware thieves had snuck onto their premises until it was too late.

    “If somebody sees a vehicle that looks out of place, write the licence plate number down,” he said.

    “If somebody sees a person that looks out of place or is acting suspiciously, don’t hesitate to call us.”
