Christmas Day motor vehicle burglaries – Springfarm Estate, Kingston

An 18 year old male has been charged and will appear in court today over multiple motor vehicle burglaries committed in Springfarm Estate, Kingston on Christmas Day.

It is alleged the man, along with a female youth accomplice, stole property from a number of vehicles in the Estate.

Tasmania Police works to help people protect their homes and vehicles from burglary.

We are currently conducting additional patrols and engaging with the community around crime prevention.

While we continue to have a high arrest and charge rate for these crimes, police can’t reduce this type of offending on our own.

“People can help prevent their homes, cars and businesses from becoming targets for thieves by taking some simple steps to make them less appealing to criminals,” said Detective Sergeant Lee Carr.

Tasmania Police encourages all car owners to:

  • Avoid parking on the street for long periods of time, especially overnight
  • Remove all valuable items from your car
  • Secure vehicles with an alarm, steering lock or immobiliser if possible
  • Always keep car doors and windows locked
  • Take tools inside overnight, even if the vehicle has a lockable canopy or toolbox
  • Park in a well-lit area if parking on the street overnight; and
  • Ensure car keys are kept out of sight.

Anyone with information or CCTV footage of the recent car burglaries should call police on 131 444, or Crime Stoppers at crimestopperstas.com.au.
Information can be provided anonymously, and you should quote OR701850.
