Ten cars were broken into Wednesday night outside the Agape Church on Fairbanks Road while the John Gray High School graduation ceremony was taking place.
“It’s clear that the fact that so many vehicles were parked at the one location proved far too tempting to the thieves,” said Chief Inspector Frank Owens.
“Despite our many previous warnings, car owners are still leaving valuables and property in view within their vehicles. If you leave items such as laptops, bags or stereos in sight you make your car a target.
“We are now in graduation season and I would urge motorists to be extra vigilant when they park their cars at the events. Lock your valuables away and if you see anyone acting suspiciously contact the police.”
The thefts took place between 8-10pm. Anyone who was in the area and saw anything suspicious is asked to contact Inspector Rudolph Gordon at George Town police station on 949-4222 or Crime Stoppers 800-8477 (TIPS).
