Southfield Ward: Beware of "Hard Luck" Story
And bag grabbed from car via open window
Local police in Southfield Ward have given us an update on recent incidents which residents should be aware of.
"Could we please remind you all that in alot of these cases the "victim's" story often seems a plausible one. We urge you therefore that if this happens to you not to let any one into your property and if the person genuinely appears distressed and in need of assistance that you call 999 for one of the emergency services. If the person is genuine they will remain there and wait for help.
"Theft from motor vehicles continues to be a problem especially now in the warm weather. There has been a recent incident on the ward where a driver has left the front passenger window open whilst driving. When she came to a stop a thief on a pedal cycle reached in and grabbed her bag which was on the seat next to her and made off. Please be aware of this."
