Three break-ins

THREE aggravated burglaries in Mt Eliza on Saturday 18 May have detectives on the hunt for multiple offenders – or possibly the same one.

Three sets of keys were stolen from a house in Attunga Way while family members were asleep, between midnight and 7am. Police were told the house’s front door had been left open. The offenders appeared to have searched through several cars for valuables before running off.

A resident confronted a man who broke into his Jacksons Road home at 4.40am. The burglar entered the property through the backyard. Once inside, he stole two remote controls, a Gucci purse and wallet with a total value of $1000.

The resident, 47, thought a noise was caused by one of his children returning home. The offender fled in the dark and no description was given.

Valuables including cash, credit cards, passport, a set of Mazda 3 keys, an Apple iPad and a Celine handbag all valued at $6000 were stolen from a house in Coles Court the same night. A couple in their mid-50s and their son, 30, were asleep upstairs.

The offenders may have entered through an unlocked front door and then walked undetected around the downstairs dining and kitchen area.

Anyone with information on these incidents is urged to call Crime Stoppers 1800 333 000.
