BE­WARE SHOP­PING CEN­TRE THIEVES

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - Street Watch -

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. The man is de­scribed as fair skinned and in his late 20s. He was about 188cm tall with a medium build and was wear­ing black track pants and a grey hooded jumper. If you know the iden­tity of this per­son or have any in­for­ma­tion about this of­fence make a re­port on­line or call Crime Stop­pers on 1800 333 000, quot­ing ref­er­ence num­ber 7400.
