THIEVES TAR­GET BASE­MENT LOCK­ERS

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - STREET WATCH - Se­nior Sergeant Brendan Moore

STOR­AGE lock­ers re­main a high con­cern to po­lice given the fre­quency of crim­i­nals tar­get­ing those lock­ers look­ing for high-end bi­cy­cles. Th­ese and other items are of­ten stored in apart­ment com­plex base­ments where it's fairly easy to gain ac­cess by what we call car­a­van­ning. This is ba­si­cally fol­low­ing be­hind res­i­dents or peo­ple who have a law­ful rea­son to en­ter a car park. En­sure ev­ery ve­hi­cle swipes in; stop your ve­hi­cle no more than 1.5 car lengths in­side the gates, wait for the gates to close be­fore mov­ing off and chal­lenge per­sons who walk in from the safety of your ve­hi­cle.
