Vehicle Related Crime
There have been at least 28 reports of vehicle related crime last month across all Wards that we know of, one of which involves a male seen on CCTV riding a push bike, he is seen to approach a parked and secure vehicle on driveway of property, Stromberg Street, when realises the vehicle is locked, he tries handles of vehicle on neighbouring property.
Male in question is subsequently arrested and once in custody through investigations and admissions during interview, he is linked and charged for nine more vehicle related offences along with criminal damage.
Please remember to remove all valuables from vehicle when left unattended and leave the glove-box open and empty to reduce the opportunity of becoming a victim.
During April our patrols will continue to deliver high visibility across all Wards in an attempt to deter vehicle crime.
