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.
