HAND­BAG THEFT NOT JUST ABOUT CASH

Mt Druitt - St Mary's Standard (East) - - NEWS -

I would like to re­mind res­i­dents to en­sure they keep any per­sonal prop­erty se­cure. There have been a num­ber of re­ported in­ci­dents of prop­erty par­tic­u­larly mo­bile phones, bags and hand­bags be­ing stolen when left unat­tended in public ar­eas or at busi­ness premises. This prop­erty has of­ten been left unat­tended nearby or in an area that can be ac­cessed by many peo­ple. We are re­mind­ing the com­mu­nity that if you leave prop­erty unat­tended, even for a short time, that it be in a se­cure area. A hand­bag not only has cash but of­ten con­tains items that can be used to com­mit other types of of­fences in­clud­ing fraud.
