Beware not to buy stolen goods

HERVEY Bay police are urging Chronicle readers to be wary of accepting stolen goods.

They have released a list of items stolen in the Bay area since October last year along with their matching serial numbers.

The list includes electronic items such as laptops, mobile phones, cameras and iPods, which police say are “quick grab” items favoured by crooks.

People who have recently bought such items but not from a store should check the serial numbers against those on the list to ensure the goods aren’t stolen.

Police say by noting down the unique serial numbers at the time of buying, members of the community can help officers to return any stolen items they come across to their correct owners.

Police also ask people be aware that it is a crime to accept stolen goods.

Those who come across any of the stolen items listed below can contact police on 4123 8111.
