Barossa Weekly Police Report

Do you have a boat, trailer or caravan parked on your property? Is it, and its contents, secure?

SA Police are reminding the community to ensure that valuables contained within vehicles – of all types - are out of sight or appropriately secured.

Valuable items that are a common target for thieves because of their value and ability to be sold for quick cash include laptop computers, GPS devices, phones, cameras, plus sporting, fishing goods and tools.

Police would urge the community to ensure all valuables are removed from vehicles or concealed from the prying eyes of opportunistic thieves.

It is also worth considering:

* Secure your trailer and boat to prevent them from being stolen.

* Remove all tools, fishing rods, tackle boxes, eskies and GPS devices from your boat or trailer.

* Do not hide spare keys inside or on your vehicle or boat.
