Dirty thieves do a dozen dirty deeds in a day
BOLD thieves have struck a dozen Toowoomba homes in the space of a day.
Toowoomba Criminal Investigation Branch officer-in-charge Paul McCusker believed the majority of the 12 daylight break and enters were committed by the same offenders yesterday.
Homes in Mt Lofty, East Toowoomba, South Toowoomba and Newtown were targeted between about 10am and 5pm.
Detective Senior Sergeant McCusker said small amounts of cash were taken.
"The offenders are mobile though the suburbs and appear to be targeting houses whilst people are out," Det. Snr Sgt McCusker said.
Police have been gathering evidence from witnesses in the search for the thieves.
The thefts prompted a warning for people to take notice of suspicious people or vehicles and report them to Policelink.
Det. Snr Sgt McCusker also urged residents to ensure homes were secured and doors were locked.
"Although they are living in a quiet area that does not remove them from being a victim of crime."
Anyone with information can call Policelink on 131444 or Crime Stoppers on 1800333000.
