Constable Morgwn Saunders from ACT Policing Criminal Investigation said the burglary in Ngunnawal was a timely reminder that people should not always assume that all burglaries occur with offender’s wearing hoodies and baseball caps.
“In this case the male offender was wearing clothing that resembled that of a trade person.
“If you see anyone in your neighbour’s backyard that you consider suspicious ask them what they are doing on the premises then contact your neighbour and verify the information.” Constable Saunders said.
“If you have any doubts then don’t hesitate to call ACT Policing on 131444.”
Anyone who may be able to assist with the investigation is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000, or via the Crime Stoppers website on www.act.crimestoppers.com.au. Information can be provided anonymously.
