Taskforce targets unsolved robberies in Logan

A new police taskforce recently set up in Logan is closing in on unsolved crime after teaming up with Griffith University in an effort to gain a clearer understanding of the causal factors behind robberies taking place across the district.

Established in July the Logan District Robbery Taskforce, working in conjunction with the Logan District CIB has already arrested 34 people on almost 40 robbery with violence charges.

Detective Inspector Tod Reid said the taskforce has been developed with the aim of overviewing, investigating and resolving unsolved robberies in the Logan District.

“Using their full range of capabilities the taskforce will assume investigative responsibility for all robberies after seven days from when the offence occurred,” Detective Inspector Reid said.

“Detectives will focus on a proactive approach to preventative measures by working in partnership with stakeholders in combating robbery offences.”

Detective Inspector Reid said the Logan Criminal Investigation Branch (CIB) recently partnered with Griffith University’s School of Criminology and Criminal Justice to get a clearer understanding of the causal factors behind robberies taking place across the district.

“A thorough analysis of the robbery occurrences that occurred in public space between June and September this year delivered four key findings,” Detective Inspector Reid said.

“Firstly, in 82.9 per cent of cases, victims had their property clearly visible prior to being robbed. Secondly, that the most common item stolen consisted of smart phones. Thirdly, in 90 per cent of the cases, victims were alone at the time they were robbed and finally that victims were likely to be young adult men walking alone in public after dark.”

Detective Inspector Reid urged the public to be aware of their surroundings, make efforts to conceal their belongings, ensure their phones are protected with a pin code and where possible, try and walk with a friend or travel with others.

“We have released footage of four particular unsolved matters that have occurred in the Logan area this year,” Detective Inspector Reid said.

“Someone has to know who these people are, and we would like anyone with information to contact police. You can remain anonymous, and we need your help to identify these suspects.”
