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. If you know the iden­tity of this per­son (right) or have any in­for­ma­tion about this of­fence, make a re­port on­line or call Crime Stop­pers on 1800 333 000, where all calls are strictly con­fi­den­tial, and re­wards are of­fered.
