Vacant Rental Properties Being Targeted

Over recent weeks Toowoomba police have received a number of complaints of unlawful entry of vacant houses which are available for rent.

Someone has been forcing entry to the rental property and looking for items to steal.  In most cases the house was empty and nothing was stolen.

Something which may indicate someone is in or has been in the rental is curtains which are usually left open have been drawn.

If there is a vacant property for rent in the street where you live and you notice anything suspicious, please contact the rental company displayed on the for rent sign.

If you think that someone is breaking into the vacant property, call the police.

If you have any information in relation to these offences, please contact the Toowoomba Property Crime Squad on 46 316344 or anonymously to Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
