SOFTWARE CAN TRACE STOLEN DEVICES
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.
