Brisbane Robberies

Brisbane Robberies

We have seen an increase in the number of robberies in Brisbane and would advise people to take extra care with their keys.

Thieves have a standard operating procedure of stealing house and car keys then loading up the car with stolen goods from the house. Cars with trailers are also being targeted. I believe trailers can easily be resold interstate without many checks on the trailers’ history. Thieves targeting particular cars is still continuing and extra care needs to be taken with both car keys and house keys.

Many late model cars can be opened and stolen without the keys being present. Extra precaution with these cars is advised. Lock the car in a secure garage or behind a secure gate will help. Not leaving the keys near the front door may also hinder access to your keys electronic signal.

Thieves do return when keys have been stolen so always make sure you change your locks after the theft of keys to stop easy entry into your home or business.

We would urge people to take extra precautions over the holiday period. We have attended too many home break-ins and it is only the start of the Easter Holidays. Thieves don’t take holidays and are looking for easy targets. Unlocked doors and windows can be inviting and even when people are at home they should take care.

The last break-in we attended a bunch of keys were stolen from the home. If keys are stolen then there is a high chance that the thieves intend to return. They can enter the home at any time they choose. Now that they know exactly what goods are inside the home they can come prepared to steal exactly what they want.

The inside combination of the locks are changed so only a newly generated key will work in the locks. If you hold this new key then the thieves key can no longer open the door.

We have also seen situations where car keys have been stolen with the intent of returning to steal the car. Securing the garage door has prevented this from occurring. Police have reported that certain cars such as Nissan Patrols’ have been recently targeted by thieves in the Brisbane region. The cars or car parts can be sold for a profit in overseas countries.

I hope this holiday season is a safe and secure time of year for you and your family. burglar
