BE­WARE THE CHRIST­MAS GRINCHES

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - STREET WATCH -

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.
