California Gov. Newsom signs bill to combat organized retail crime following brazen and violent thefts

  California Gov. Newsom signs bill to combat organized retail crime following brazen and violent thefts California Gov. Newsom announced new efforts to crack down on a surge of retail thefts and other crimes Wednesday following a series of violent and bold incidents involving shoplifters.Appearing with law enforcement officials and mayors from throughout the state at a small business in Long Beach, the Democratic governor signed a bill to create crime task forces around the California Highway Patrol and local agencies to address organized theft rings.

Police have released footage of two people wanted over the theft of an electric wheelchair from an Adelaide home, with one of the suspects caught on CCTV parading up and down the street on the stolen device.

The wheelchair was stolen from the backyard of a property at Richmond in Adelaide's west and "has special features to specifically assist the victim's mobility", police said.

The CCTV shows the pair stealing the wheelchair on Tuesday morning and then the woman riding it up and down a street while the man walks nearby.

Western District detectives are seeking help from the public to identify the pair.

Wheelchair sports in Tasmania growing, building confidence and community

  Wheelchair sports in Tasmania growing, building confidence and community On a chilly night in Ulverstone you get the occasional whiff of burnt rubber on a wooden floor as wheelchair basketballers jostle for the ball. It's a joy taking people with a disability "away to play".It is sport at its best, competitive enough — sometimes aggressively physical — but with a strong emphasis on support, nurture and, especially, fun.

A time stamp on the video shows the wheelchair was stolen about 4:40am.

Earlier this week, Disability Advocacy and Complaints Service of South Australia chief executive Kendall Field said it was "not just the cost of a specialised chair like this that makes the theft deplorable".

"It's what this means for the person who relies on the chair for mobility, daily living tasks and accessing the community," Ms Field said.

"Most people don't realise wheelchairs, like the one stolen, are specially scripted to fit their owner and can take several months to replace.

"This act demonstrated blatant disregard for the person living with disability and a complete lack of care or awareness."

Anyone who sees the stolen wheelchair or has information about its whereabouts has been urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
