REPORT SUSPICIOUS BEHAVIOUR
At about 12.35pm on June 24, a woman pushing a pink stroller entered a sports store at Belmont Forum shopping centre. After browsing around the store she selected a pair of men’s shorts valued at $45 and put them into a bag she was carrying. She then left the store, making no attempt to pay for the shorts. A staff member asked her to show the contents of her bag before leaving, but she only quickly showed her bag before walking off. Police have released a CCTV image of a woman who they believe can help them with their inquiries. The woman is described as dark skinned and in her early to mid20s. She had a solid build, brown hair and was wearing black pants and a grey Adidas T-shirt. It is very important that members of the public report anything suspicious or any crime that may be happening in their area. By reporting you are providing valuable information and helping police identify hotspots and other areas that may require additional police attention. Reporting crime can be completed in a variety of ways. These include – but are not limited to – telephoning your local police station, going to your local police station and discussing the matter with an officer or perhaps calling Crime Stoppers. Either way the information is put to good use. A good way of keeping up-to-date on what is happening in your area is to follow your local police station on their social media website which is usually updated on a daily basis.
