Police are warning people to keep their cars parked off the street and to consider the use of steering locks after two Mazda vehicles were broken into.

In the past two days vehicles in Manor Pl and Maitland St were broken into, with back lights broken and ignition locks damaged.

Snr Sgt Craig Dinnissen said people should use deterrents for their cars to avoid being targeted.

"Consider alarming your car and getting up if you hear an alarm go off.

"It might not be yours, but yours might be next.''
