Car Stolen In Mackay

A burglar's broken into a home in South Mackay, stolen a set of car keys and the car they belonged to.

An open window at the front of a house in George Street, South Mackay was targeted as the entry point by a burglar between 12am and 5.50am on February 10.

The burglar has cut a large hole in the screen on the window and reached inside to steal a set of car keys placed on a bar within reach of the window.

The car keys were then used to steal a White 2015 Holden Commodore sedan, registration number 452 VTL, which was parked close by in the front driveway.

Black pin striping runs along the door sills on both sides of the car and a black rear spoiler is also fitted. The car also has damage to the front left hand side of the vehicle as a result of a recent collision with a kangaroo.

Anyone with information about the current location of the stolen car or the offence itself is encouraged to contact police as soon as possible.

Burglars will routinely check all doors and windows when they are trying to identify a point of entry into a home and this even includes small bathroom and toilet windows.

Anything found to be unlocked or unsecured is an immediate entry point from their point of view.

If your house is found to be secure, they simply move on in an effort to find another target or until they are caught by police.

Police also encourage all residents and business owners to consider safe, out of sight storage options for car keys.

If you see or hear any suspicious behaviour at any hour of the night – report the matter to police as soon as you are able.
