KEEP CARS AND LETTERBOXES SECURE
FREMANTLE Police continue to focus on targeting stealing from motor vehicles with a spike of this type of crime in East Fremantle, North Fremantle and Beaconsfield. During a police operation information was received from members of the community about a recent offence that occurred involving mail being stolen from letterboxes and then linked to multiple vehicles being broken in to in the Fremantle area, which led to an arrest. These type of offences are very easy for potential crooks and police remind the community to remove all valuables and lock letterboxes to make it tougher for crooks. - Fremantle OIC Brad Warburton
