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
