ONLY SECONDS FOR THIEF TO STEAL FROM TROL­LEYS

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - Street Watch -

PO­LICE charged three peo­ple in relation to a ve­hi­cle break-in at a drive­way on Rose­berry Av­enue in which a bag was al­legedly taken. A 20-year-old from Vic­to­ria Park, 19year-old from Gos­nells and 18year-old from Carlisle were charged with one count each of crim­i­nal dam­age and steal­ing. They are due to ap­pear in the Perth Mag­is­trates Court on Novem­ber 4. If you ever no­tice sus­pi­cious ac­tiv­ity, con­tact Po­lice on 131 444. 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.
