Gold FM Police File
Acting Sergeant Sterling Huett updated the Police File this week.
There's been a spate of vehicle break-ins with property stolen. Sterling said it is unfortunate that people are leaving their vehicles unlocked. "We are doing our best to try to stem this."
Sterling said police have a 24-hour service in the district. If people hear or see something that needs attention they can call 111. "We've also got our Community Patrols that are out there at night time too trying to identify suspicious behaviour."
A building site was broken into for a second time last week. Damage done to aluminium jewellery probably outweighed the value of the goods taken. "If you've got a building site - lock it up well. Try not to store valuable tools on site. That is a target," Acting Sergeant Huett said.
