Western Suburbs Weekly - - Street Watch -

We had three in­ci­dents of steal­ing from cars at Cottes­loe Beach when the tem­per­a­ture reached 31 de­grees last week. This first hot day is just the start of the sum­mer sea­son when we ex­pe­ri­ence thefts from cars at the beach be­cause peo­ple bring their valu­ables when they go for a swim. These thefts are pre­ventable. Do not take valu­ables to the beach or leave them in your car. Leave them at home. Po­lice have dash mats for the public that say “no valu­ables left in this ve­hi­cle”. They are avail­able at Cottes­loe Po­lice Sta­tion. Re­mem­ber, theft of your iPod, mo­bile phone, wal­let or credit card is more than a per­sonal in­con­ve­nience. These stolen items are used in sub­se­quent crimes, in­clud­ing fraud and the drugs trade. - Se­nior Sergeant Neil Mor­ton-Smith.
