Police urge members of the public to keep personal property safe
3:26pm Monday 23rd December 2013 in News
MEMBERS of the public are urged to keep their mobile phones secure following a spate of thefts from York nightclubs.
On the night of Saturday, December 21 to Sunday, December 22, police took reports of 10 stolen mobiles from Kuda and Club Salvation.
North Yorkshire Police are asking for members of the public to come forward if they were in any of the clubs on Saturday night and may have information about the thefts. They would also like to hear from anyone who believes they may be a victim of phone theft but have not yet come forward.
Anyone who has any information about the phone thefts or if they want to report a stolen device, call North Yorkshire Police on 101.
Officers are also encouraging everyone to take as many security precautions as possible with their valuables - comprehensive security advice is available at www.northyorkshire.police.uk/mobiledevices including advice for parents on child internet safety.
Property which is clearly marked is less attractive to a potential thief as it will be more difficult to sell on and is identifiable as being stolen.
Visit http://www.immobilise.com/ and create a free private and secure portfolio of all your personal property; consider using Immobilise Hologram Security Stickers for added security; and as the very minimum, you should record the unique details for your device and store them somewhere safe.
Officers said it is important to advertise the fact that property is marked and easily identifiable.
