Two Wells Residents Urged to Report Incidents to Police
A recent spate of thefts in the Two Wells area has prompted local police to remind residents to remain vigilant in keeping their vehicles locked when unattended.
In the majority of offences reported to police, the thefts were from motor vehicles parked in the driveway or outside the victim’s home but were left unlocked.
“These thieves were opportunistic and preyed on people who were lax with their security”, said Brevet Sergeant Grant Devlin, Officer in Charge of Two Wells Police Station.
“We ask residents to ensure their valuables are not left in plain sight and ideally, are removed when leaving the car unattended.”
Police are urging local residents to report all thefts and incidents to police, no matter how minor in nature they think they might be.
Police believe that there may be other incidents in the township which have not been reported during the same period.
