Police say a set of car keys was stolen from a communal locker area gym on Southport Nerang Road, Molendinar yesterday morning.

The keys were then used to steal a white 2002 Toyota Camry from the carpark, belonging to a 60-year-old man.

Later in the day, another set of car keys was nabbed from a storage locker at a gym on Coomera Grand Drive, Coomera.

A grey 2015 Mazda CX-5 belonging to a 26-year-old man was subsequently stolen from the carpark.

It comes after a white 2007 Mitsubishi Lancer belonging to a 22-year-old man was stolen from a North Brisbane gym on Saturday, April 2.

All three cars have since been sighted in the Moreton area.

Gym-goers are being urged to always ensure their keys, mobile phones, handbags and wallets are stored out of sight and in a locked, secure area when at the gym.

Investigations into all three matters continue.
