TAKE VALUABLES OUT OF CARS
STEALING from motor vehicles is still an issue. Wallets, handbags and laptops left in vehicles are the most common items stolen. A friendly reminder to take that little bit of extra time to make sure you remove all valuables before leaving your car. Some encouraging news is that police recently charged some people with trespassing and are continuing inquiries into various stealing offences they may have been involved in.
