Thieves raid Coffs cars

THIEVES have had a field day raiding cars in Coffs Harbour.

One of their biggest break-ins came overnight on Monday in Anderton Street when they smashed a rear quarter window of a vehicle.

They hauled off a portable fridge, an air compressor, a gas stove, navigation equipment, a temperature gauge, a video camera, a picnic set and a CD collection.

In Brodie Drive the same night they smashed their way into a white Holden Commodore station wagon and ran away with three briefcases.

Elsewhere, a locked white Ford Laser sedan in Lucas Avenue was forced open and the intruders stole a handbag on Sunday night.

In Wentworth Avenue, meanwhile, the louts tried their luck on two cars overnight on Monday.

They smashed a window on a white Toyota Hilux, but fled empty-handed. They also smashed a front window on a Falcon sedan and took compact discs and cash.

Coffs Harbour police are appealing for residents to ensure their vehicles are locked at all times and to make sure they don’t leave any valuables in them.

If you see suspicious activity in your neighbourhood, or if you can help with these latest investigations, you are urged to contact Coffs Harbour police on 6652 0299.
