LEAVE YOUR VALUABLES AT HOME
POLICE are cracking down on thefts from beach-goers and cars during Operation Sweep the Beach, after 28 crimes at Cottesloe Beach were reported in the past four weeks. “That may not sound like much until you remember that’s just one of the beaches on the coast,” Sen Sgt Carol Vernon said. Police will conduct extra patrols of the foreshore, car parks and nearby streets. “But the best way to help prevent these crimes is not to take your valuables to the beach,” Sgt Vernon said.
