Car in your driveway is also a target

2017-04-11 06:03

Diep River police would like to appeal to residents to stop leaving their belongings in parked, unattended cars, even if the car is parked in their own driveways.

Theft out of cars in the Diep River policing precinct is currently a huge concern.

Amanda Gordon, spokesperson of Diep River Police Station, says they would like to inform community members to be cautious if approached by anyone saying he is a municipal worker, as it is a scam to get into your home and steal from the premises.

She says the police are grateful for the law enforcement, neighbourhood watch and security providers and the community for their efforts in the fight against crime. V Any person with information about any crimes should call Crime Stop on 08600 10111.
