There has been a number of stealing offences being committed in beach car parks over the past month. Thirroul has had two cars stolen from the beach area which has been used as a getaway vehicle for offender/s committing bag snatch type offences in other parts of the Wollongong patrol.
On other occasions surfers appear to be the target and it is most likely that the offender/s watch the movements of their victim and then when they are surfing their vehicles are broken into or personal effects stolen from the beach.
Also young persons have been gathering in their motor vehicles in Club lane Helensburgh at the rear of the Doctors Surgery causing problems with local residents by using offensive language, making undue noise and leaving their rubbish behind. If this continues please call Police so they can be moved on.
This time of year sees large amounts of deers mostly males frequenting built up areas which includes roadways as part of their mating season behaviour, recently we have had to put down suffering animals hit by vehicles so drivers need to be careful from sunset to sunrise.
