A SPECIAL Christmas edition of a police comic warning of how goods can be stolen has been released.

Part of Hertfordshire Constabulary’s comic series Careless Carl, the latest edition featuring festive thief Robin Gear encourages people to take extra care with their belongings when out over Christmas.

A police spokesman said: “With nights out over Christmas and New Year and people shopping in the January sales, the festive season provides more opportunities for thieves, so we hope this fun approach helps remind people how to keep their property safe.

“It only takes a few seconds for a thief to help himself, so try to keep your belongings close.”
