POLICE have praised Jimboomba locals for their quick response to the three-day COVID-19 lockdown, with no fines for infringements handed out over the period.

The state government-imposed lockdown caused chaos in local supermarkets, with people flocking to stock up before it began, but police were happy with residents' behaviour.

Sergeant Rob Duncan said a number of parties which had been registered with police were cancelled to comply.

"The compliance was great," he said.

"We've had no problems at all.

"People are looking after each other, not just themselves."

Canteen break-in at Flagstone college

Drinks were stolen from the canteen at Flagstone State Community College when it was broken into earlier this month.

Offenders smashed a door with a fire extinguisher to get into the canteen during the robbery overnight on January 12.

Police said poppers were taken.

They urged residents to watch out for people on school grounds during the holidays.

"We are asking people to keep an eye out on schools," Sergeant Duncan said.

Even harmless incidents like children playing on school grounds was not allowed.

"If you have no permission to be on school grounds, it's unlawful," he said.
