Victoria Police are warning the public to not leave valuables in cars after tourists had much of their gear stolen from the downtown area.
On Monday July 22 a couple parked their rental car in the 700-block of Broughton Street, only to find approximately $5,000 worth of items stolen from it when they returned.
The couple lost most of their clothing and travel gear.
VicPD released an 18-second video to demonstrate how quickly thieves can break in and steal items from a vehicle.
“The safest way to avoid being a victim of a theft from your vehicle is also the simplest – take your belongings with you,” VicPD said in a release.
