Police are warning the community not to buy or receive stolen goods. It is an offence to receive or buy stolen property. If communities support criminals in purchasing stolen goods, more victims will suffer because purchasing goods in this illegal manner motivates criminals to repeat their actions. Reject any goods you suspect to be stolen and report the matter to the police.
