Police remind residents to remain vigilant following thefts at Moree

Residents reminded to remain vigilant with home security

Police from New England Police District are reminding residents to remain vigilant with their home security and take steps to avoid being the victim of opportunistic thieves.

Moree Officer In Charge, Inspector Helen McWilliam said one of the best strategies to prevent crime was local knowledge.

"If you see anyone suspicious wandering your street, let us know and tell your neighbours," she said.

Reports taken in the past 24 hours within the Moree sector include break-ins and stealings in Amaroo Drive, Keperra Place and Boston Street in Moree.

"Watch out for neighbours, keep track of who is in your street or walking laneways in your neighbourhood," Insp McWilliam said.

"Are there people hanging around in the street who aren't normally there?

"And importantly, call us to report any of these suspicious behaviours."

If your home has been broken into:

  • Call your local police station immediately.
  • Don't touch anything. Let police see your home exactly as the thief left it.
  • While you are waiting for police to arrive, compile a list of what you think is missing. Include brand names, model numbers, serial numbers, accurate descriptions and any engraving details.

Police are urging anyone with information in relation to local property crime to call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or use the Crime Stoppers online reporting pag.
