EASY PICK­INGS LEFT IN PLAIN SIGHT

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - STREET WATCH -

THE amount of valu­able prop­erty that is still be­ing left in plain sight in ve­hi­cles is dis­turb­ing. We are continuously hav­ing thefts of i-Pads, lap­tops, phones, sun­glasses and wal­lets. Un­for­tu­nately, so many thieves are op­por­tunis­tic and will need no sec­ond chance in tak­ing 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 now half­way through Op­er­a­tion Sweep to pre­vent these crimes. We ask the pub­lic to al­ways be aware, do not leave valu­ables in plain sight and to re­port any sus­pi­cious be­hav­iour you see in the com­mu­nity. – Se­nior Sergeant Ash Goy
