Since late August the criminal activity has significantly increased in the Middleton beach area and police are reminding the public to be vigilant.
Vehicles, cash and surfboards are among the property that has been stolen in a recent crime spree targeting the Ocean Parade carpark.
In most cases, the offender has been able to locate unsecured keys, under the wheel arch of the car or left with a towel, to gain entry to the vehicle while the owner is surfing.
Police encourage anyone who has seen suspicious activity to phone Police Assistance on 131 444.
