Police investigate Gerringong break-ins

POLICE are investigating links between a series of break-in and attempted break-ins in Gerringong starting early on Sunday. 

About 4am, residents of a home on Tasman Drive woke to noises outside their house and discovered their car keys had been stolen.

When they went outside to investigate, they saw two men walking away from their car and felt the bonnet was warm, suggesting it had been driven without their knowledge.

The keys were not returned with the car.

They later discovered their vehicle had been used in a number of robberies in the area that morning. 

Police believe the car had been used in a failed break and enter at a home on Cooke Place, as well as the robbery of a home on Geering Street where a number of personal items were taken.

They suspect the car may also have been used in the theft from a car on Pacific Avenue.About the same time on Sunday, two males were seen to look through a window from another Tasman Drive property.

The movement cause the sensor light to come on. CCTV cameras at the home recorded footage of the incident. They left without breaking in.  

Lake Illawarra crime prevention officer Senior Constable Mark Scott said two men were seen leaving the car in Tasman Drive, one with blond curly hair.

Anyone with information should contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
