Police are urging people to report any suspicious activity and ensure doors and windows are locked after Merimbula's Short Point became the recent target of a number of criminal activities.
On Tuesday morning a police forensics team attended a Collins St home following a break-in in the early hours of Sunday morning, November 15.
Police were called to the home on Sunday morning when a female resident who was home alone, heard a noise and on investigation saw a man run out of a sliding door, a police spokeswoman said.
The thief took off with gold jewellery, cash and electronc devices.
Just hours earlier on Saturday evening a would be burglar was disturbed and made off empty-handed during an attempted break-in in Cliff St.
The week previous in the early hours of Sunday morning, November 8 a car was stolen from a home in Lakeview Avenue.
The police media spokeswoman said a maroon Toyota Tarago station wagon was stolen from the home. The vehicle was then discovered when police and fire services were called out to a burning vehicle on Millangandi Road, Millangandi.
A Millangandi resident phoned police and Merimbula Rural Fire Service attended to douse the flames.
Councillor Mitchell Nadin also lives on Short Point and said the recent spate of thefts was a concern.
"This is really sad, we're a trusting, relaxed community and it's young business people who have worked hard for what they've got and who have been hit by this crime spree and all this in such a tough year too," Cr Nadin said.
"Whoever these deplorables are I hope the police catch up with them as soon as possible and we see an end to this bizarre crime spree."
