Police are calling for information relating to a number of vehicles broken into in the Moruya area. Please don’t think that because you live in Eden, Merimbula, Bega, Narooma or Batemans Bay areas, that you’ll be okay. If you leave your vehicle unlocked then at some stage your vehicle may be targeted. Let your visitors to our beautiful south coast know that they need to lock their vehicles. Unfortunate but necessary.
Between 2.00 am and 3.20 am on Friday the 27th of October 2017 on Murray Street, Moruya an unknown offender has entered an unlocked vehicle parked on the council strip. The offender has rummaged through the vehicle and removed a number of items from the glovebox including a small amount of coin. A further two vehicles parked nearby, also believed to be unlocked were entered and again a small amount of coins were taken from the centre console of one vehicle and the other had been rummaged through but no property appears to be stolen.
The offender is then believed at some stage to have entered a driveway in Murray Street where a vehicle was entered via what is again believed to be an unlocked door. Stolen from the vehicle was a Laptop computer and two mobile phones.
About 2.45am a lady in Thomas Street, Moruya saw a person shine a touch into her home window. She alerted police who attended shortly after. On arriving at the location police found the lady’s vehicle parked unlocked in the driveway. The vehicle had been entered and a number of things moved about the vehicle.
A further two vehicles in Evans Street, Moruya were also entered during the early morning where it is believed the offender entered via unlocked driver’s doors and removed a Navman from the glovebox compartment in one vehicle and a wallet containing cash, cards and jewellery, coins from the console area and mobile/radio phone cords and chargers from the other vehicle.
Another vehicle believed to be locked in Ryan Place, Moruya found the owner awaking Friday morning to find gym gear all over the front lawn and the owners driver’s door open.
