UPDATE | Police have issued a reminder, after finding a burnt out car in Moore Park Beach on May 9.

The vehicle was stolen from Edward Street, Maryborough and police were called to attend to the stolen vehicle which was engulfed by flames on Lindemans Roads.

The vehicle (pictured) was stolen when someone was able to get into a home through an unlocked screen door and locate the car keys.  

The owner was even home at the time of the offence and didn’t suspect a thing.

The first thing the owner knew about their vehicle being stolen, was when they received a phone call from police the following morning advising that their vehicle was found burnt out over 100 kilometres from their home.

The cost to the victim was not only financial, but also emotional through the feeling of insecurity.

Police ask, how secure would you feel knowing a stranger had been in your home and gone through your belongings?

Police still see offences being committed because of unlocked doors or windows, which allow offenders easy access into your homes to steal your property.

Police would like to take this opportunity to remind you to lock up your homes and your vehicles!

EARLIER | It would appear that a car has been set alight in the middle of the road at Moore Park Beach.
