IN­CREASE IN THE THEFT

South Waikato News - - Conversations -

Toko­roa Po­lice re­sponded to 73 in­ci­dents in the past week and se­nior sergeant Ja­son Hen­der­son said bur­glary and theft re­mains a con­cern. Peo­ple are re­minded to se­cure their prop­erty. ‘‘A lot of th­ese crimes are op­por­tunis­tic with ex­pen­sive items left in the open for any­one to see. Un­for­tu­nately if you leave your prop­erty out like this then you can ex­pect it to be stolen.’’ He said thieves are of­ten lazy peo­ple look­ing for the easy op­tion. ‘‘The an­swer here is to take re­spon­si­bil­ity for your prop­erty and se­cure it out of sight which will re­sult in the thief look­ing else­where."
