A HUNTINGDALE man has been ar­rested fol­low­ing an al­leged crime spree in Perth’s south-eastern sub­urbs on Wed­nes­day, Septem­ber 6, in­volv­ing a firearm and a road rage in­ci­dent.

The 45 year-old man was ar­rested fol­low­ing a string of crimes, af­ter which po­lice lo­cated a sawn-off 12-gauge shot­gun and about 35 shot­gun shells.

Po­lice said the man dam­aged a house on Ju­bilee Street in Beck­en­ham, be­fore he went to a prop­erty on Barkley Loop in Canning Vale two hours later armed with a firearm.

Shortly af­ter­wards, po­lice said the man re­peat­edly rammed a car which had stopped at a round­about.

About 7pm, what was be­lieved to be a gun­shot was heard near Moss Street in Huntingdale.

Po­lice re­sponded and re­leased a po­lice dog when they heard the man’s raised voice.

Af­ter a short con­fronta­tion, the man was tasered and ar­rested.

The man was charged with pos­sess­ing a firearm with cir­cum­stances of ag­gra­va­tion (al­tered) and en­dan­ger­ment of life, health or safety of a per­son.

He has been re­manded in cus­tody and will face court on Oc­to­ber 3.
