South Australian Police are urging locals to remain vigilant with their valuables, while hitting the beach during the warmer weather.
Police advise, keeping a watchful eye on belongings and ensuring your vehicle is locked and secure at all times.
Police suggest the following:
*Minimise what valuables you take to the beach and attach your keys to a large chain to reduce the chance of losing them in the sand.
*If possible, lock valuables in the boot of your car, but don’t leave items in plain sight.
*If you go for a walk or a swim, take your valuables with you.
*Concealing items of value in shoes and towels isn’t safe; thieves could be watching you hide them, and they know where to look anyway.
Examples of suspicious behaviour include:
*Stopping to rummage through someone else’s property
*Walking back to check out belongings
*Taking something and walking off
*Not dressed for the beach, watchful, looking around; they just don’t seem to fit in.
Police remind locals to report anyone acting suspiciously or stealing items on the beach immediately on 131 444.
