BEWARE SHOPPING CENTRE THIEVES
Police are reminding residents to not become complacent with the weather warming up and to ensure windows are not left unlocked. The reminder comes after a home burglary on Ranelagh Crescent in South Perth where valuable property was stolen. Police are receiving reports of handbags being stolen from shopping centres, and of the stolen credit cards being used within minutes of the theft. Ensure your handbag or purse is not left in plain view on top of the shopping trolley, even when leaving your trolley for just a second. We do know offenders use these areas to prey on the unsuspecting. Having your cards stolen and used by others is a massive inconvenience, not to mention the financial impact. It pays to scan your surroundings for those who may be shadowing you. What does an offender look like? Who knows….. Follow us on Twitter @KensingtonPol. – Snr Sgt Ash Goy Great Eastern Highway.
