SPRING BRINGS OUT THE CROOKS

Southern Gazette (Belmont) - - STREET WATCH -

GEN­ER­ALLY spring rep­re­sents a sea­sonal in­crease in crime, in par­tic­u­lar bur­glary and theft of­fences. It is that time we air our houses af­ter a long, cold and wet win­ter, but we still have a re­spon­si­bil­ity to keep our win­dows and doors locked. Your house doesn't have to be Fort Knox, but it should be se­cure. Out­side sen­sor lights are great - crooks hate be­ing seen. The num­ber of bikes be­ing stolen from un­locked and some­times com­pletely open garages is on the rise again, so please keep your garage doors down, even when gar­den­ing on the week­end.

-Se­nior Sergeant Gavin Radice
