Chains cut to gain entry
Last week there were two burglaries, one to a residential property and the other to a commercial property.
At the commercial property, entry was gained by cutting chains on a gate. A large quantity of building equipment was taken.
The residential property was targeted for usual items such as large screen televisions.
A vehicle that was broken into was only left for a short time, but a number of expensive items were on the dashboard in clear view to anyone walking pass.
I can’t emphasise enough the importance of taking these items with you when you leave your vehicle alone.
One vehicle was reported stolen. It is a blue Toyota Toyoace flat deck truck with the registration CKJ816.
If you see this vehicle in your travels then contact police.
I have been made aware of a number of scams in the past few weeks. Listed are a few that have been reported:
People receive a text message claiming they have won large amounts of money and all they have to do is text or email their details and the money will be paid to them.
A female calls people telling them their computer is full of viruses. She tells them she can fix it but needs their details and email address.
People have received a call claiming they are owed thousands of dollars from the bank. The caller claims to be a ‘ ‘ reclaim expert’’. To access the thousands people are being asked to send them some money.
If you receive a phone call offering money or anything that sounds too good to be true then it is most probably a scam.
