Protect your children’s phones

In recent weeks there have been reports of some yobs preying on children either on the way to and from local schools, or in our parks and stealing their mobile phones.

In an attempt to ensure that if these phones are sold on – the cash converter-style shops are favourites – it is possible to mark up the phones with with the post code or address of the genuine owner with an Ultra-violet pen. This enables the police to identify stolen property with an ultra violet reader when they carry out checks on these outlets.

This Saturday, (10th Jan.) between 10.30am and 11.00am local councillors Bob Piper and Richard Marshall will be at Thimblemill Library with UV marker pens to enable parents and schoolchildren to bring in their phones to have them marked up.

Of course, if people want to bring in other valuables for marking, we can do those too!

    Its worth listing all identifiable property with then advise them when it’s stolen. Shops such as Cash Converters check there first and should alert police
