14 arrested by cops

2017-03-14 06:02

Fourteen people were arrested in the Diep River policing precinct last week. They were arrested for crimes like theft, possession of stolen property and drugs and robbery.

Diep River police urge residents to be vigilant when walking with valuables such as cellphones visible to the public eye.

Motorists should take note of how and where their cars are parked, say Diep River police in a statement, and ensure that there are no valuables left inside of any cars. Be aware of your surroundings at all times, especially when in public areas like shopping malls and train stations as it makes it easier for a criminal to approach you and grab your property in a busy environment.

Diep River police say they are dedicated to fighting crime and criminal activity will not be tolerated.
