Don't leave your car unlocked even for five minutes

MOTORISTS are being advised to keep their cars locked after a man had his wallet stolen after leaving his car unattended for only a few minutes.

Bundaberg Police Sergeant Steve Schultz said the man left his wallet, containing a substantial amount of cash, in the back of his truck and found it had been stolen when he returned 15 minutes later.

"Even if you leave your car for five minutes - if you're not looking at it, it should be locked," he said.

"There are opportunistic thieves watching all the time."
