Police round-up: Cars, number plates stolen
Words by Jodie Powell

Opportunistic thieves stole a red Hyundai Tucson from a home in Leicester Court at Murrumba Downs on November 1.

The 2017 vehicle, with the Queensland registration 081XNA, was taken from the unlocked garage using the keys that were left inside.

A white Hyundai was seen stopping outside the address about 8.30am, and is believed to have been stolen from Greenslopes between 5.10am and 6.45am on November 1.

The Hyundai found in Pilba St, Chermside at 9.16pm on the same day, but the red Tucson is yet to be recovered.

Unlawful entry to motor vehicles

Six reports of unlawful entry or attempted unlawful entry to motor vehicles and stolen number plates have been made across the Moreton Bay Region during a two-day period.


Tools and first aid kits were stolen from two work vehicles at a property in Piper St, Caboolture between 5pm on October 31 and 5.30am on November 1.

An electric gate was damaged to gain entry.


A man was captured on CCTV trying to open a car door in Walsh St, Redcliffe at 10.15am on November 1, but was unable to gain entry.

Police says this is a good example of the importance of locking car doors to prevent opportunistic crimes.

Plates taken

Number plates were stolen from vehicles in George St, Deception Bay, McKean St, Caboolture and Beerburrum Rd, Caboolture.
