KEEP YOUR PURSE AND BAG SAFE
WE are seeing a common trend of purses and bags stolen from shoppers, not just in the stores but outside. When putting the shopping or baby into the car, do not leave your handbag on top of the car roof. It takes only a fleeting second for thieves shadowing you and watching your movements to move in and take your property when you least suspect it. When inside the store, keep hold of your handbag at all times and do not leave it on top of the trolley. Major shopping centres are mainly the problem areas but treat each shopping outing the same. Be vigilant and report any suspicious behaviour. sleeved top and blue jeans.
