PEO­PLE are still leav­ing hand­bags vis­i­ble in cars at pub­lic places. We are al­lo­cat­ing police re­sources to com­bat the theft of these valu­ables. But leav­ing any valu­ables in cars ex­poses them to theft by crim­i­nals. Don't take any chances; take these with you when you leave your cars, and re­port any sus­pi­cious ac­tiv­ity to police im­me­di­ately.

MEM­BERS of the pub­lic made a cit­i­zen’s ar­rest on a man try­ing to break into a house on March 27. Bel­mont police at­tended the scene at a res­i­dence on Sur­rey Road in Kew­dale. Mem­bers of the pub­lic had come to the as­sis­tance of a fe­male vic­tim who was scream­ing. The woman had been con­fronted by the man of in­ter­est as he al­legedly tried to en­ter her house through a locked front door. The man fled the house but was chased and de­tained un­til police ar­rived. He was charged with ag­gra­vated bur­glary with in­tent and drug pos­ses­sion charges.
