MOUNT Druitt police are warning motorists not to leave valuables in their vehicles at car parks.
A police spokesman gave this advice after thieves stole a handbag containing several credit cards and personal information from a car parked in a shopping centre car park about 6.30pm last Sunday week, March 16.
He gave motorists these tips:
■ Lock up every time when leaving your vehicle;
■ Never leave your keys in the ignition;
■ Park in well-lit areas, and don't park back streets;
■ Never leave the keys to your vehicle on your desk at work or in easily accessible places;
■ Never label your keys with your home address or vehicle registration;
■ Never leave your automatic garage door opener in your vehicle with your GPS as many thieves simply press the home button on your GPS and drive to your premises.
