Crime creep­ing up

North Coast Times - - NEWS - From page 1

Sgt Wride said the sta­tion had one “hy­brid” lo­cal polic­ing team and a cou­ple of ex­tra of­fi­cers who did re­sponse tasks as well in the sub-dis­trict cover­ing Yanchep, Two Rocks, Eglin­ton and Alki­mos.

“Crime has started to creep up this year,” he said.

“A lot is to do with peo­ple leav­ing valu­ables in cars and houses un­locked.”

He said thefts from build­ing sites were an on­go­ing is­sue and urged peo­ple to re­port any­thing sus­pi­cious.

“If any­one is near a home un­der con­struc­tion and sees some­one tak­ing some­thing, take a note of the reg­is­tra­tion num­ber and give us a call,” he said.

“If some­one is tak­ing some­thing from a build­ing site, there is a good chance they are steal­ing it.”
