Cheeky thieves at Muriwai Beach are locking the cars they have pilfered and returning the keys to their hiding place.

Spotters have been spying on beach-goers who hide their car keys before going for a walk or swim.

Police in Kumeu are warning people to take keys and valuables with them. This follows a spate of break-ins and thefts.

On October 28, two cars were broken into and one car was stolen.

The targeted cars were locked and the keys put back in their hiding places.

Small, expensive items including iPods, iPads and iPhones were swiped from unsuspecting tourists.

Those who are unwilling to take their keys are urged to buy small safes which fit on to tow bars.
