Thousands of dollars worth of property has been stolen including chainsaws, quad bikes, power-tools, and batteries.

Senior Sergeant Brett Jackson says police are advising home and property owners to lock up their homes, their sheds, and their cars especially at night and when you are not at home.

He says if you have valuable equipment on your property take a photo of it and take down serial numbers, so if it does get stolen police have a point of reference.

Garages in residential areas are also a target if they are not locked at night. Police say they are easy to get into and then it's easy entry into your home.

Senior Sergeant Brett Jackson says lock up and make it hard for would be thieves.
