Duo charged over beach thefts

POLICE have charged two men over thefts in beach areas.

Rosedale police arrested a 25-year-old and 29-year-old on Saturday following a spate of thefts in the Loch Sport and Golden Beach areas.

The men have been charged with burglary, theft and theft from a motor car.

Police said given it was now holiday time, this was a timely reminder for residents to make sure they locked houses, vehicles and garden sheds. They also suggested people check on neighbours, and report to police or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 if they saw anything suspicious.
