Recent Crimes in Carnamah

27th March 2020

Sergeant Bell from the Carnamah Police has asked that local residents and businesses be particularly vigilant as there has been a spate of crime in town over the past few weeks. This has coincided with the COVID-19 pandemic and, sadly, crime often escalates during emergencies.

Keep your homes and vehicles locked and your valuables in a safe place. Don’t hesitate to report any suspicious behaviour to the Police on 9951 1222.

In addition, now that parents are being encouraged to keep their children home from school, it is important that they ensure the kids are not wandering the streets, getting into mischief.

As many people keep saying, we are in difficult times and everyone needs to contribute to the good of the community. We need to work together rather than taking advantage of others.
