Monthly crime stats for Townsville show a steady decline in offences since July.

Although fewer charges were dealt out in September, drugs and theft offences were both up on the previous month.

Drug related offences were up 22 percent, with thefts increasing by more than 12 percent.

That trend is seemingly continuing into October following 22 illegal entries committed over the weekend.
