“PEOPLE need to continue to be security conscious, especially with summer now here.
While there has been a reduction of 82 stealing offences in October/November, which includes from motor vehicles, I continue to urge everyone to remove valuable items from vehicles.
Overnight on December 5 to 6, items stolen from vehicles included cash, mobile phones, a handbag, backpack, purse and a debit card.
When reporting instances of stealing from vehicles please advise police of any tools or other items left in vehicles by the offenders and any blood drops where the offender may have cut themselves on gaining entry to the vehicle.
Police are keen to forensically exam these items in an attempt to identify the offenders” – Scarborough Police Senior Sergeant Craig Wanstall
