Hi all, just letting every one know there was an attempt to steal my LJ on Tuesday night, they tried to gain entry through the back roller door which is well locked  then tried the house and even got into the wives car looking for the garage remote. So if you live around the Kellyville area just be careful.

4 cars stolen each and every night here in Cairns. Multiple other cars attempted. And keep in mind pretty much every car theft was accompanied by a house break in to steal car keys. The police have told residents here that it’s not a matter of if, but when, your house will be broken into and car stolen.

You shouldn't have to lock all your stuff up and you should be able to leave your keys in your car and come back to it .Most people are taught from an early age that if it doesn't belong to them then don't touch it!Society needs to get tough with these pricks ,and being an addict is NO excuse.

Sux big time to have to worry about hard earned posessions getting taken by scumbags.

 

I've had a car stolen and it affects you in many ways!!

 

Thing is,a lot of these kids have nothing to lose, and once in the system, that can for many, become

their way of life. Older dudes, if they are repeat offenders - cell time progressing, so they don't get out til they get it is not on

to take something that is not their's.

 

The most scary part is if you do catch them in the act, it could be us that end's up on a charge, or worse, if too many lowlifes

and you take them on, which we all probably would, well, not good for us......

 

Cars are expensive, make the time fit the crime.

Sounds like you need a new top cop in town, who just announces a Zero Tolerance Policy for this crap....if that doesnt happen, it becomes the norm. 

 

Think of all the crap that used to happen in NYC, I think it was Rudie Guilianie??? came in as mayor, and just said that's it, no more...and resourced the cops to make it happen....took a few years...but purged most of the dead heads ( sure there's a few left, but it broke the back of the problem ).

The police on the beat are doing a great job catching these kids. After all, kids are stupid. So they are not too hard to track down. It’s the youth justice system and the courts which are letting the community down.

I’ve seen homeowners now going to the expense of fitting crimsafe screens etc, so now they just smash the glass windows to gain access, quickly take the car keys and they are gone.

We are now being instructed by the police to buy a small safe and put phones/keys/wallet in them when at home.

I agree the cops are doing the best they can with resources they have ,these kids are not all stupid ,they case out the place first and know where the cameras are and wear hoodies ,often can't be identified.And they are not all kids .

Yep thats a valid point, and one that residents have also raised. They would rather the car be taken instead of a life. 

 

Generally the main offenders are aged between 8-14 years of age, aboriginal kids. (Dont you Melbourne hipsters try and call me a racist). They dont like driving manuals, so Auto's are the pick.

 

They will walk the streets first whistling to each other to set off the neighbourhood dogs, so they know which houses are easier targets, then they will spray paint a tag on the footpath to highlight that fact. 

 

They break in, steal a car, drive to another neighbourhood, dump the car, break into another house, steal another car. 

 

They know that there are zero consequences, so there is simply no deterrent what so ever, and that is no lie. The cycle needs to be broken. And it needs to be broken early in life at family/household level.

That's too close for comfort, thanks :huh: .  Sometime it makes me wonder if owning cars that can be targeted for theft is worth the stress.

Don't like leaving them behind if you go out.  Don't like leaving them anywhere you can't see them. Disappointed that they can't be part of a big night out.

Always worried about someone coming to the house and seeing the cars. (always keep the garage closed and locked.)

I am thinking in a few years to give them to the kids, but the buggers will say thanks and them bring them back for storage at my place.

I guess this is how people start to loose the enthusiasm for cars. Sooner or later the cost, lack of use, worry and being a target for home invasion take its toll.

This is the sort of thing you see daily on FB along with multiple cars stolen nightly. Every morning I see posts about 3-4 cars being stolen along with properties being broken into.

Police patrols won’t do a thing.
Can’t have a cop in every street corner.

Need tougher penalties.
Most crims just re offend petty crimes just so they can go back in and get fed, shelter, Foxtel, and their mates.
Need less creature comforts inside.

Most crim kids come from a crim/grub family.

Don’t wanna get political but look at Muslim penalties.
Get caught stealing get your hands cut off.

Have a similar problem down my way.

Generally not stealing the cars, but going through for change and stuff.

Its amazing what some people leave in their cars in plain view.

Some people are removing everything from their cars and leaving them unlocked.

The cars dont get damaged while they look for stuff.

However they may damage the car out of frustration from finding nothing.
