I am living in Mawson lakes from last 8 years and i hardly heard about or seen crime in Mawson lakes. I Always parked my cars off street or in my driveway , didn't have any safety shutter on my windows s, i am a v happy person.
I live in Mawson Lakes 12 days only and today at the morning when I want to took my sons to school by car and my car off street parking when I open the door I saw my car navigation was stolen around 400 dollar 3 sun glasses about 800 dollars and many items and I felt sad
That's not right. The only thing that is bad about Mawson Lakes is the internet. You will have to get the internet boxes for it to work (They are not expensive to buy) By the way, my friend lives in Mawson Lakes and says its the safest suburb he lived in. So it is safe. There are hardly any rentals or smashed cars and abandoned cars on Elder Smith Drive. Get your facts right, or check your text again.
With lots of rentals there is lots of petty crime. The answer unfortunately is yes. Train station regularly has cars with smashed windows. Abandoned\ stolen cars along Elder Smith Dr, You are surrounded by Parafield Gardens and Pooraka.....this alone answers your question.
