Police have attended four break-ins in the Bargara area in the past fortnight and warn property owners to be on alert.

SANTA has been given no help in distributing Christmas cheer thanks to greedy gremlins who have been breaking into several Bargara homes and units and stealing items including coffee tables, beds and televisions.

Police have attended four break-ins in the Bargara area in the past fortnight - one of which included a self-contained home being stripped of all its household items including a TV, coffee table, a basin, a sink and a bed.

Property owners have been advised to be aware of any suspicious activity happening in their area, and to call police immediately if they notice anything untoward.

With a high number of families expected to leave town on holidays next month, police are urging them to ensure their homes and units are locked up.
