Is your vehicle like a jeweller’s shop window? Items you can see left in your vehicle, a thief can also see. Look after your property and take it with you or leave it at home.

It only takes a second to smash a window and it’s gone.

Any attractive items such as shopping bags, backpacks, sports bags, handbags, purses and wallets left in your vehicle are temptations for someone to smash your window or try the door and steal your property.

Do not leave coins and cash visible, put your tools and laptops/tablets out of sight or leave them secured at home, and take your sunnies with you.

Opportunist thieves will steal first and look at the value later and leave you to pay for the damage and for raised insurance because of claims, not to mention the inconvenience of cancelling all your cards and applying and waiting a week or more for new ones to arrive.

The convenience of contactless payment technology left unattended may mean multiple purchases can be made before you realise your money has gone.

Acting Inspector Brad Bird is the officer-in-charge at Geraldton Police Station.
