DECEMBER 2015 CRIME REPORT

Firstly, I would like to wish you the best for 2016!  Thankfully there were no household burglaries during December in our Neighbourhood Watch area, but three businesses on the Old Pacific Highway were victims of crime.
Other than burglaries, someone stole a builder’s trailer (full of tools) from outside a house in Missouri Way.  The worst thing is that the offender is probably also in the building trade and would use or sell the tools.
Break and enter premises
14/12/2015 Old Pacific Highway: Unknown offender/s has broken into the Salvation Army store through the rear door, apparently looking for money.  Unknown if anything stolen.
23/12/2015 Old Pacific Highway: Unknown person has gained entry to the business by jemmying the lock on the rear door.  Cash has been stolen from the cash register.
23/12/2015 Old Pacific Highway: Unknown person has tried to gain entry to the business by jemmying the lock on the rear door. Nil entry made, nil property stolen.
Stealing
09/12/2015 California Drive: Unknown offender/s has unhitched the victim’s dual axle work trailer from his vehicle & stolen it.  The trailer was full of tools at the time.
Stealing of vehicle registration plates
28/12/2015 Cottonwood Place: Unknown person has removed both number plates from the victim's Holden station wagon whilst parked at Woolworths.
Wilful damage
23/12/2015 Global Plaza: Unknown male has written graffiti on the walls of the disabled toilet and the external power box of the McDonalds store.

If you have any information in relation to any of these offences, call Coomera Police on 5519 5555 or Crimestoppers on 1800 333 000.

DOMESTIC AND FAMILY VIOLENCE



Domestic and family violence is not just physical violence. Domestic and family violence can include
any of these acts:

 emotional abuse (e.g. criticising your personality, looks or parenting skills);
 verbal abuse (e.g. yelling, shouting and swearing at you);
 stalking and harassment (e.g. constantly following or phoning you, cyberstalking or tracking
you through social media or Global Positioning Systems (GPS));
 financial abuse (e.g. not giving you enough money to survive, or forcing you to hand over
your money);
 physical abuse (e.g. slapping, hitting or pushing);
 damaging property to frighten you (e.g. punching holes in walls or breaking furniture);
 social abuse (e.g. not letting you see your friends or family, isolating you from people you
care about);
 spiritual abuse (e.g. forcing you to attend religious activities or stopping you from taking part
in your religious or cultural practices);
 sexual abuse (e.g. forcing or coercing you to have sex);
 depriving a person of the necessities of life such as food, shelter and medical care,
committed by one person to another that they are in a domestic relationship with.

Domestic and family violence is unacceptable. Further information about domestic and family
violence and what you can do is available at www.qld.gov.au/community/getting-support-healthsocial-issue/domestic-family-violence/. Telephone support is available at:
