POLICE have appealed for suspicious behaviour near building sites to be reported to reduce thefts.
Police crime prevention co-ordinator for the Bayside Patrol Sergeant Chris Hebblethwaite said theft from construction sites was a common occurrence and could add significant costs to the price of a new home or building.
“Offences will often occur in neighbouring streets too as offenders take the opportunity to look for that nearby unlocked car or house,” Sergeant Hebblethwaite said.
