I heard tonight there's been a lot of thievery going on in my neighbourhood this past week. Some very close to home :(
My neighbour P, who lives across the lobby, bought one of these wheeled 'carriers' last Thursday.
they're similar to the larger ones that get attached to bicycles and children ride in them.
(I don't approve of that, they look too dangerous to me).
Anyway, P bought this just last Thursday and kept it next to her 'gopher', even had a blue plastic tarp over it, just like she does on her gopher.
Where? In the small alcove next to the back door to the lobby. It isn't visible unless someone walks all the way around the building.
Today, it was stolen. Even the tarp was stolen. P is very upset. These things aren't cheap and she's an aged pensioner. It was purchased to help her carry the bottles and cans P collects and takes to the recycle centre weekly.The money she gets from those, goes to the RSPCA for the animal shelters.
I suggested she phone the police and she did so, that's when she heard about all the other thefts in this area. She came to tell me she is the eighth person to contact the police in a week . Two bicycles have been stolen, all the clothes off someone's washing line, a near neighbour has had things thrown into her yard, like rotten tomatoes, after thieves were unable to get past her dog.
From now on, when I leave home and lock away my laptop, I'll be locking away my cameras too.
