Police are warning Oamaru residents to be vigilant about security following a spate of offending involving vehicles.
Yesterday, Acting Sergeant Warren Duncan said the thefts had occurred during the past two weeks, and included thefts of at least three vehicles.
A 1988 light blue Ford Falcon, registration NN7364, was reported stolen from France St on Sunday night.
On the same night, a car was broken into in Exe St and about 80 compact discs were stolen from the back seat.
There had also been thefts from motor vehicles in Aln and Reed Sts and a car stolen from Aln St was found burnt-out on Coal Pit Rd on Monday. A car stolen from Eden St was later found burnt-out near Ikawai, Sgt Duncan said.
People were urged to review their security and, if possible, park off the street.
They were also asked to watch what was happening around their neighbourhood and report any suspicious activity.
Anyone with information about the thefts was asked to contact police, Sgt Duncan said.
