Police from Holden Hill and Western Adelaide Local Service Areas have noticed a recent spike in reports of thefts from parked cars

Police from Holden Hill and Western Adelaide Local Service Areas have noticed a recent spike in reports of thefts from parked cars. Also of concern, about half of the cars weren’t locked at the time.

Police ask anyone who has recently been a victim of theft of property from their vehicle to report it. Each report helps build a picture of the activity of thieves and police can direct attention to those areas.

To reduce the chances of becoming a victim of theft, there are safety tips to consider EVERY TIME you park your car:

– Lock your vehicle doors and close windows
– Install an alarm or immobiliser and activate it
– Park off the road and, if possible, in a locked garage
– At night, if parking on the street, park in a well-lit area
– Avoid placing bags and wallets on the passenger seat where they could be easily grabbed – never leave them in your vehicle
– When at home keep your vehicle keys out of sight, in a safe place. Don’t leave them on a table where they can be easily grabbed
– Do not hide spare keys inside or on your vehicle – thieves know where to look for them
– Remove valuables such as GPS devices, mobile phones, laptops, fishing rods and cameras from parked vehicles.

Man detained as missing SA kids found safe and well: police

 

Three young siblings who went missing in South Australia have been found safe and well and a man has been detained, police say.

Ethan Lawson, 12, Jayden Lawson, 10, and Sienna Dodd, 6, disappeared on Wednesday night but have since been located and placed with “appropriate authorities”, Superintendent Ian Parrot said on Friday.

“A man has been detained by police at this time for breaching his bail, but importantly the children are safe and well,” he said.

Police have not identified the detained man but earlier said they believed the children were probably with their parents Dylan and Chantelle Lawson.

The children had been in “alternative care” when they were dropped off at an oval in Christies Beach for football training on Wednesday night.

Police launched an extensive search for the trio on Friday, who were initially thought to have been heading for their father’s house at nearby Hackham West.
