Laptop theft a crime of opportunity
AN opportunistic thief took a laptop left on the number 66 bus at the Elizabeth Quay busport about 8.45am on November 4.
Constable Craig Angus said the passenger had the laptop in a bag before he put it on a shelf behind the bus’s front seats.
“The passenger got off the bus, forgetting to take their laptop with them, and as the bus pulled up at the busport another man picked up the bag containing the laptop and left the bus,” Constable Angus said.
He was described as light-skinned, 35-45, medium build, with dark, wavy hair and a moustache, wearing a green and blue horizontal striped long-sleeved top, blue jeans, running shoes and a baseball cap.
