More property of­fences

Whitsunday Times - - LOCAL NEWS -

PROSER­PINE Po­lice have re­ported a sharp in­crease in property of­fences in the Proser­pine area, where a large num­ber of cars have been en­tered and property taken. Al­co­hol has been taken from fridges kept in out­door ar­eas and in unlocked garages. There has also been a num­ber of bi­cy­cles stolen from dwellings and schools.

Po­lice have spo­ken to a num­ber of Proser­pine youths who have as­sisted with in­quiries. How­ever, they are ask­ing lo­cal res­i­dents to be vig­i­lant in lock­ing and se­cur­ing all valu­ables, es­pe­cially ve­hi­cles. The ma­jor­ity of these of­fences have been com­mit­ted late at night. People with in­for­ma­tion are asked to call the Proser­pine sta­tion on 4945 9666.
