REVEALED: What suburbs thieves are targeting in Gladstone

GLADSTONE region residents have been targeted by thieves, with 20 break-in and theft offences recorded in the past week.

Gladstone Police Sergeant Wayne Butcher said the number of offences committed while entering unlocked and insecure premises was “concerning”.
