Police warn Mary Valley property owners
Gympie region police have warned rural property owners to make sure their homes and assets are secure after an intruder or intruders have gone on to a Mary Valley property and rummaged through a vehicle and trailer.
Between November 19 and 27, on an acreage property on Whelan Road, Bollier the property has been entered twice, police said.
In the first incident the offender/s have entered the property and approached a trailer, where they rummaged through the property inside, as if looking for something.
The second incident the offender/s have entered the property and walked into the large open carport positioned to the right hand side of the dwelling, they have opened the doors of a vehicle that was parked there and rummaged through the property inside, scattering the contents throughout the car.
In both circumstances it appears that nothing was taken.
Please take this as a warning that you need to secure your vehicles and property, even if you are on an acreage. Unfortunately, times have changed and opportunistic thieves are on the look out for money or items they can steal and sell easily.
If anyone has any information about these incidents please report it.
