Thieves in the night strike the Inner North

By johnboy - 12 April 2013 9

ACT Policing is urging residents to be vigilant following several cases of burglary, property damage and theft in secure underground car parks in Braddon, Turner, Lyneham and O’Conner areas recently.

The offences have been occurring during the hours of darkness, mostly between 2.30am and 4.30am on Tuesday’s and Thursday’s.

Items stolen so far include electrical items such as laptops and cameras, bikes, mag wheels, tools and spare change.

Superintendent Brett Kidner said that opportunistic thieves often use a resident’s car entering through a security car park door to conceal their illegal entry.

“By sneaking under a security door as it shuts, thieves will look to steal anything valuable they can find inside, including house keys or electronic swipe cards which they can use to access the same location again,” Superintendent Kidner said.

“The best defence for residents against these offenders is to be exceptionally vigilant when driving in or out of their car park. If you see anyone acting suspiciously near the car park security door, or entering without authorisation, contact Police Operations on 131-444.”

Police urge anyone who may have seen anything suspicious in these areas, no matter how small the information is to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000, or via the Crime Stoppers website at www.act.crimestoppers.com.au.

Really.

Perhaps a media release about grammar and spelling crimes at the ACT Police?

Law and Order: Special Grammar Squad.

I volunteered for the Apostrophe Flying Squad.

In the internet justice system, grammar based offenses are considered especially heinous. In Canberra, the dedicated detectives who investigate these vicious felonies are members of an elite squad known as the Gramar Unit. These are their stories. DUUNG DUUNG
