POLICE are asking people to stop making it easy for burglars to enter homes amid a spree of burglaries in Langwarrin where intruders gained entry through open doors or windows.
Senior Sergeant Steve Fyfe, of Frankston CIU, says police have been investigating several thefts from homes where offenders have entered through unlocked or open doors and windows.
“Everyone needs to take responsibility for their own property and unfortunately it’s not a good idea to leave doors open at night even to let cooler air in,” he said.
In one incident, a male victim in his 30s living in Bottlebrush Court chased a burglar towards Quarry Road. There had been three burglaries on Friday 23 March and Saturday 24 March in the area at Quarry Road, Bottlebrush Court and Honeymyrtle Court.
The fleeing burglar was described as being in his mid-20s, caucasian and wearing shorts with no T-shirt or shoes. He had a mullet hairstyle and seemed to be “substance affected”.
