BEWARE THE CHRISTMAS GRINCHES
CHRISTMAS is not far away, which means school holidays, lots of shopping, celebrations and Christmas cheer. Last year, the Christmas grinches were on the prowl. We caught them but not before they had stolen thousands of dollars worth of gifts and presents from victims' front door steps. This Christmas, if you're expecting a package, organise to have it delivered to your workplace or pick it up from the post office. There are thieves who literally follow the delivery vans around this time of year to steal packages from homes. – Senior Sergeant Simon Hazell TWO 16-year-old Kewdale boys were charged with a number of offences after they allegedly stole a car and crashed into a letterbox in Carlisle.
