Another example of how Police on the beat would have prevented these crimes with the added bonus of regular contact with this low life would enabled them to know who were committing these and other offences.

Trouble is the contribution of a Bobby on the Beat can never be quantified or measured so they don't form part of Policing strategies - Pity.
