Theft of valuables at holiday spots

NUMEROUS thefts from campsites at Inskip Point and Rainbow Beach have prompted police to remind holiday makers to be vigilant.

District Crime Prevention Co-ordinator Senior Constable Llew O'Brien said campers and visitors to the area should ensure they secure their valuables when leaving the campsite and when they are sleeping.

"Since New Year's Eve, a number of thefts have occurred involving property being stolen from campsites," Snr Cnst O'Brien said.

The stolen items have has included foodstuffs, fishing equipment and solar panels.

"These are crimes of opportunity so the key to stopping these thieving miscreants is - don't give them the opportunity and secure your gear," Snr Cnst O'Brien said.

"Also, if you see someone you think could be up to no good, get a good description of the person for police, in case they have committed an offence."
