POLICE are investigating two incidents of theft from motor vehicles in Mortlake overnight Thursday.
Senior Constable Shannon Kavenagh said two residents reported belongings missing from their cars yesterday morning.
“Both incidents occurred in close proximity to each other,” she said.
“Unfortunately, in both incidents the vehicles were unlocked, so it is a timely reminder to people to ensure their vehicles are locked, even if they are in a driveway or garage,” Senior Constable Kavenagh said.
“People should also ensure valuable items are not left in plain sight on the front seat, or even in the glovebox.”
Senior Constable Kavenagh urged anyone with information about the thefts, or who saw any suspicious behaviour, to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or the Mortlake police station.
