IT'S dis­turb­ing the amount of valu­able prop­erty that is still be­ing left in plain sight in ve­hi­cles. We are hav­ing daily thefts of iPads, lap­tops, phones, sun­glasses and wallets. Un­for­tu­nately, so many thieves are op­por­tunis­tic and need no sec­ond chance to take some­thing when they come across it. Th­ese crimes are be­ing com­mit­ted right un­der our noses with some ve­hi­cles be­ing left unat­tended for only a few min­utes. If you con­tinue to leave your valu­ables in plain sight, be­fore you know it, you will be fil­ing po­lice re­ports to say your credit cards have been fraud­u­lently used. WA Po­lice are well into Op­er­a­tion Sweep to pre­vent th­ese crimes and put a stop to op­por­tunis­tic theft. We ask the pub­lic to al­ways be aware.
