Crime in Benowa

Kay Watkinson

I would like to warn everyone about the risk of being burgled in Benowa. I have just had my laptop stolen from my home, thieves entered through an unlocked window unfortunately.  The police have told me that crime is rife in our area (St Kevins Avenue) and that everyone should be very careful to have window locks, dead locks, security screens, do it all. 

I was under the misapprehension that this was a relatively safe area. The police told me high school students are one of the main offenders.  The school is at the end of our street. 

Take care everyone and heed this warning.  I was too complacent.
