Reminder to lock vehicles
Police are again reminding people to lock their vehicles after a spate of recent thefts from motor vehicles have occurred in the region.
In the Yarrawonga Mulwala area a large amount of cars were broken into over the weekend and police are currently following up with enquiries.
In one instance loose change was stolen, while a key was the only thing stolen from another car that was searched extensively by the thieves with items thrown around the back seat.
Police are advising the community to not leave valuables in the car and to note that although Yarrawonga is a small country town theft still happens so be weary with what is left in your car.
If you are out in the early hours of the morning and see something suspicious don’t wait to call the police.
Ring 000 straight away even if you think the Yarrawonga police station may not be manned, as an officer will be dispatched out to the situation right away.
If you have any information on a car break-in that occurred over the weekend please contact the Yarrawonga Police on 5744 3641.
