Police notified of night-time trespasser
On the following night (September 8-9), police were notified of an adult trespassing in various yards in the area around Malikoff and Rainbow Streets.
Patrols were made immediately but have yet to identify any property stolen or locate the offender.
If any person finds a person trespassing or attempting to gain entry into their vehicles, please ring 000.
Remember to secure your property
Police are urging all community members to secure their houses, valuables and vehicles.
Historically, as the weather warms up leading into summer there is an increase in opportunistic crime as windows and doors are left open for ventilation making easy access for a thief.
The rates of property crime are presently down from previous years and police need the help from the public to report suspicious activity immediately and secure their property.
