Cockburn Gazette - - STREET WATCH -

WE quite of­ten get elec­tronic de­vices stolen. A de­vice such as an iPhone or iPad will send out a sig­nal which, if the right soft­ware is in­stalled, will pro­vide a lo­ca­tion of the miss­ing item. So it is im­por­tant, if a theft oc­curs, for the vic­tim to quickly come to police with that in­for­ma­tion about a lo­ca­tion for their stolen prop­erty. – Senior Sergeant Paul Gelmi


An el­derly man has died fol­low­ing a crash in Bea­cons­field on Sun­day May 27. The crash hap­pened about 11am, when the 84-year-old man was sitting in a Volk­swa­gen Golf in the drive­way of a house on Michael Street. It is be­lieved he was help­ing an­other man check the rear lights of the ve­hi­cle, when he stepped on the ac­cel­er­a­tor in­stead of the brakes, caus­ing the ve­hi­cle to re­verse out of the drive­way and into a neigh­bour­ing yard. Dur­ing this time the man fell from the ve­hi­cle, re­ceiv­ing se­ri­ous head in­juries. He was taken to Fiona Stan­ley Hospi­tal where he died as a re­sult of his in­juries. An­other man aged in his 70s re­ceived mi­nor in­juries. Any­one who saw the crash is asked to call Crime Stop­pers.


Wit­nesses de­tained a man who al­legedly tried to flee the scene of a car crash in Bi­bra Lake just af­ter noon on Wed­nes­day May 30. Police said the man was with an­other male in a Mazda sedan that was al­legedly driv­ing dan­ger­ously when it crashed into a Toy­ota and a power pole about 12.30pm on Port Kem­bla Drive. “It is fur­ther al­leged that one of the men at­tempted to leave the area,” a spokes­woman said. “Sev­eral mem­bers of the pub­lic as­sisted to de­tain the man un­til police ar­rived on the scene.” The driver of the Mazda and fe­male driver of the Toy­ota re­ceived non-life threat­en­ing in­juries and were taken to Fiona Stan­ley Hospi­tal. Of­fi­cers charged a 27-year-old Leda man with at­tempted rob­bery, dan­ger­ous driv­ing caus­ing bod­ily harm, driv­ing with­out a li­cence and fail­ing to ren­der as­sis­tance. He was due to face Perth Mag­is­trates Court this week. A 20-year-old South Lake man was charged with car­ry­ing an ar­ti­cle to cause fear. He is due to face Fre­man­tle Mag­is­trates Court on June 29. In­ves­ti­ga­tors wish to speak with any­one who saw the crash or has dash-cam footage re­lat­ing to the in­ci­dent. Call Crime Stop­pers with in­for­ma­tion.
