FIRST it was our businesses, now community and sporting groups around Biloela are also being targeted.
The spate of break-ins in Biloela has continued with several community groups being hit over the last month.
Biloela Police Senior Sergeant Nick Paton said most of the recent break-ins were in isolated places where alcohol was stored.
"Because of the nature of the offences and the things that are being stolen, it is probably juvenile-related," Senior Sergeant Paton said.
"People shouldn't think that we are living in a crime-ravaged town but obviously they should be aware there are people around and take steps accordingly."
The police are now warning residents to take care when it comes to looking after their belongings.
"People shouldn't be paranoid that their house will be burgled but keep the place locked up."
Senior Sergeant Paton said there were some simple steps people could take to ensure their house, car and businesses were safe.
"The harder you make it for a thief the more chance they will go and take someone else's which is easier.
"With houses keep your windows locked and your doors and if you're away get your neighbours to keep an eye on the property."
Senior Sergeant Paton also said if residents could afford an alarm system it would be ideal to get one installed.
"There is going to be a lot less chance of your place being burgled if the burglar sees an alarm.
"A lot of the burglaries we get around here are sneaky ones," he said.
"So even if you are home during the day it's worthwhile if you're working out the front of the house don't leave your back door open.
"If you have lots of trees in front of your house that gives the burglar cover, try and cut them back so people can see into your yard."
Senior Sergeant Paton said steps to protect cars were just as easy.
"Leave them in a well lit area, locked with an alarm set.
"Don't leave valuables in the car where people can see them.
"If you have valuables lock them in the boot."
Senior Sergeant Paton said residents should be aware that all properties were different and all crime prevention was different.
