Thieves are targeting the cars of people out for a stroll on the beach.

Senior Sergeant Allan Whaley said nine cars were broken into around the Centennial Dr - Back Beach area in the most recent spate.

''It's the same areas that are usually targeted during the fine weather when people are leaving their cars and going for a walk along the beach,'' Mr Whaley said.

He urged people to call police if they saw anything suspicious or to take down the registration of suspicious cars.

What do you think of Maori trying to restrict access to the breakwater?

It's a ridiculous move and won't help.

Good on them for standing up for themselves.

It's a non-issue since they can't fully cut off access.

Don't know, don't care
