A burglary at a building site has prompted police to encourage people to protect their businesses and homes.
Between Saturday 24th May to Tuesday 27th May, a building site near Penrith was burgled.
Two containers had been forced open and expensive power and plant equipment was stolen.
Police recommend using Smartwater which helps to track criminals. It is a forensic property marking kit. On arrest, suspects are checked for traces of the marking system.
Smartwater will dry clear on the offender’s hair, skin and clothes and can last for weeks. Once detected, police can pinpoint it to a location or crime.
