Image from Hampton Police Division, Virginia, USA
During November, there were six crimes reported to police, two of which were the theft of number plates. There has been a kayak stolen from the Coomera Riverfront. Several were stolen last year, so if you own a kayak or canoe store it securely, preferably indoors.
Finally, I’d like to wish you all a happy and safe Christmas and take care in whatever you do.

CRIME REPORT - OCTOBER 2017


During October, six crimes were reported to police, all involving vehicles. Two cars were broken into with wallets or purses being stolen. One of these offences was solved when an offender was intercepted in Southport (whilst driving a stolen car) and was in possession of the cards.
I cannot emphasise how important it is to take all valuables out of your car overnight. Stealing from cars is endemic right across South East Queensland as thieves know easy cash is always available and Pay Wave makes using stolen credits cards easy.
In two offences, someone decided to slash the tyres on cars parked on Michigan Drive, causing a lot of pain for no reason at all.
If you want to hear more about the reported crimes in our area, attend the next NHW meeting at 7pm on Tuesday 14 November at the Youth and Community Centre.
Steal from motor vehicle
02/10/2017 Missouri Way: The victim's Holden utility was parked in a carport at the victim's house. Unknown offenders have jacked up the vehicle, stolen the rear wheels and attempted to steal the front wheels.
08/10/2017 Dakota Place: SOLVED: Unknown offender/s has gained entry to the victims Honda hatch by breaking the left rear window whilst it was parked in the driveway. The victim's wallet was stolen from the vehicle. Credit cards were later located in a stolen vehicle with the offender.
11/10/2017 Villanova Avenue: Unknown offender/s has gained entry to the victims Mazda hatch by unknown means whilst it was parked in the driveway. Cash was stolen from the vehicle.
Stealing of vehicle registration plates
06/10/2017 Riversdale Road: Unknown offender has removed both number plates from the victim's Hyundai sedan whilst it was parked in the victim's driveway.

PREVENTING SHOPLIFTING - INFO AND ADVICE AVAILABLE FROM QUEENSLAND POLICE




Shoplifting accounts for a large percentage of reported annual shop losses. Shoplifters come from all walks of life and from all socio-economic backgrounds. They generally fall into one of two groups – amateurs or professionals.

Amateur shoplifters usually steal on impulse (e.g. young people who steal to impress their friends). Professional shoplifters are more likely to work in pairs or groups, although they will work alone. They often steal to obtain a false refund for the items and have often “cased out” a store before stealing. 

If you own a local business and would like some help and advice to help prevent shoplifting, visit the Queensland Police website at www.police.qld.gov.au where you’ll find information on:
  • Store Layout and Design
  • Staff Education and Training
  • Business Policies and Procedures
The website also gives tips on a  number of strategies  you can use  when confronted with shoplifters.
