DON’T LEAVE (CAR) DOOR OPEN TO THEFT

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Streetwatch -

Po­lice are work­ing ex­tremely hard on re­duc­ing the num­ber of steal­ing from mo­tor ve­hi­cle of­fences, but un­for­tu­nately ve­hi­cles parked any­where at any time can be tar­geted, which makes ap­pre­hend­ing those re­spon­si­ble quite chal­leng­ing. Re­move all items of value, while en­sur­ing doors are locked when the ve­hi­cle is unat­tended, as re­ports in­di­cate hand­bags, lap­tops, wal­lets and mo­bile phones are still be­ing left in ve­hi­cles in plain sight, very tempt­ing for would-be thieves. If you are un­for­tu­nate enough to have your ve­hi­cle bro­ken in to, make sure you re­port it to po­lice on 131 444 ASAP, as this en­sures ap­pro­pri­ate ac­tions are taken in an at­tempt to catch those re­spon­si­ble. - Se­nior Sergeant Peter Arancini
