POLICE are still receiving reports of purses and handbags being stolen from shopping trolleys left unattended. It is important to understand that it only takes a matter of seconds for an opportunistic thief to steal items and leave unnoticed. To help reduce such incidents, shoppers should always maintain a constant watch on their belongings. There are also some excellent handbag alarms on the market that could further help deter would-be thieves. On a positive note, if you are unfortunate enough to be a victim, most shopping centres are now fitted with very good CCTVs which help police catch and prosecute offenders for such incidents. Be vigilant and stay alert and report any suspicious activity to police. - Belmont Local Policing Team Senior Sergeant Peter Arancini following day without the copper.
