Lock-up lesson for Clermont after car stolen from home

A RURAL community was reminded it is not immune to the scourge of car theft after a Clermont home was targeted overnight.

Senior Constable Steve Smith said a blue 2008 model Toyota Yaris, with registration number 467 MYP, was stolen from a home on Jellicoe Street, Clermont.

Snr Cnst Smith said the theft occurred between 6.45pm Thursday and 4.20am Friday.

The thieves found the car unlocked, with the keys inside, Snr Cnst Smith said.

He encouraged all residents to secure their vehicles and store car keys in secure, out of sight locations.

“Regardless of whether you live in a location which is urban or rural, thieves thrive on opportunities,” Snr Cnst Smith said.

“Unlocked vehicles with keys present are an opportunity that a thief will never walk away from.”

Anyone who has seen the stolen car or who may have information linked to the matter is encouraged to contact police as soon as possible.
