Bonbeach Carjacking thwarted

Three thugs carrying iron bars attempted a carjacking outside Bonbeach basketball complex, on Sunday 4th June 2017. A plain clothes policewoman thwarted the attempt, when she drew her handgun. The three men who were strongly built, and wearing dark clothing, ran off.

Unfortunately, the general public cannot carry hand guns, buts this adds weight to the argument that the general public should be allowed to carry stun guns and mace, to protect themselves.

Public Assistance Required

The Victoria Police have been dropping flyers in letterboxes around the Mordialloc area due to a series of burglaries which occurred at several premises between 6:30pm and 8:00pm on Monday 5th June 2017.

It is likely that a woman, who knocked on doors around that time, might be involved.

If you have information please call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000, or contact Kingston Crime Investigation Unit Ph 9556 6111.

Security Suggestions

One the best ways to stopped this unprecedented crime wave is to install high quality security cameras, so that facial details of the offenders can be given to help the police.

Neighbours should band together to see if they can get bulk discounts from security experts. As well, there are some new security products which are available from Bunnings, which are as simple as screwing in a light bulb, and paying a small annual fee, to send the photos direct to your mobile phone.

Another no cost way is to make sure residents have the contact numbers of their neighbours, so after ringing police, their neighbour can record details and number plates.
