SIX offenders are facing more than 60 charges of car theft and theft from cars in the Frankston, Carrum Downs, and Seaford areas over the past month.
The three females and three males aged 16-26 are all known to each other. Some have been remanded and others released on bail. They will all appear at Frankston Magistrates’ Court on various dates.
Detective Senior Constable Ryan Collins said nine cars were stolen by the group – and all had been unlocked with keys easily found. Stolen property included mobile phones and cash. He urged drivers to lock their cars and remove valuables when parked – even in driveways.
