A credit card stolen from a bur­glary was used at a ser­vice sta­tion in River­vale on Fri­day, De­cem­ber 26. The card is be­lieved to have been taken when a house in the East Vic­to­ria Park area was bro­ken into. Later that af­ter­noon, at 3.30pm, the card was used at the Wool­worths Cal­tex on Great Eastern High­way. Po­lice have re­leased a CCTV im­age of a woman they be­lieve can as­sist them with their in­quiries. The woman is de­scribed as be­ing dark-skinned, of slim build with dark hair tied in a top-knot. She was wear­ing a pink hooded jumper. If you know the iden­tity of this per­son or have any in­for­ma­tion make a re­port on­line or call Crime Stop­pers on 1800 333 000, where all calls are strictly con­fi­den­tial, AN in­crease in bur­glary of­fences in River­vale prompted Bel­mont Po­lice to in­sti­gate a lo­cal ac­tion plan. Re­sources have been drawn from the po­lice sta­tion and sur­round­ing ar­eas to pro­vide both vis­i­ble and plain-clothes pa­trols of hotspots. Work­ing along­side the City of Bel­mont Crime Pre­ven­tion staff and lo­cal Neigh­bour­hood Watch vol­un­teers who de­liv­ered in­for­ma­tion leaflets, re­ports of bur­glar­ies have de­creased. In­for­ma­tion re­ceived from mem­bers of the com­mu­nity led to the ar­rest of two adults charged with bur­glary of­fences since the in­cep­tion of the plan. It is still dis­ap­point­ing that of­fend­ers were gain­ing en­try to houses through un­locked doors and win­dows. Visit www.be­crime­free.com.au and re­wards are of­fered.
