There has been an increase in break and enter offences in the Carina Police Division. The QPS has reported that in the past month there have been 19 offences across Carina, Carina Heights, Camp Hill and Carindale.
Sergeant Michelle Mullen posted on the QPS blog that nearly half of the offences occurred during the night and more than likely when the residents were at home. A third occurred during daytime hours.
“There has been a mix of methods of entry. Some entries were forced, some were sneak offences through open doors and windows, and some were by propping open the garage door with a brick.”
“The Officer in Charge of Carina Station has increased patrols in the area however residents are urged to be vigilant and aware to suspicious activity in the area. This includes strangers knocking on doors, activity on bike-ways, and other unusual behaviours in the area.”
