There has been an increase in petty crime in the New City Road area of Mullumbimby, the residential area behind the council buildings.
Car break-ins, cash stolen at dusk from an unlocked car etc. Residents, visitors and workmen alike may want to consider taking extra care to protect their belongings, in case they return to find they now belong to someone else.
If this has been happening in other areas of Mullumbimby too, it would be a community service to speak up and let others know.

Editor’s note: We have been advised that a car was stolen from Stuart Street at night last week, despite being locked, and later found burnt out in Bangalow.
