About 10.50pm on Oc­to­ber 21, po­lice re­ceived a re­port of a bur­glary in progress at a res­i­dence on Vir­ginia Av­enue. The of­fend­ers left the scene in a black Holden Ad­ven­tra. The ve­hi­cle was lo­cated and of­fi­cers tried to stop it, but the driver failed to stop. A short time later the ve­hi­cle was sighted by an­other po­lice unit, and the Po­lice Air Wing was called in. The car was mon­i­tored by the po­lice he­li­copter crew and a stinger de­vice was de­ployed on Hale Road in Wat­tle Grove, de­flat­ing two tyres. The ve­hi­cle was aban­doned near the in­ter­sec­tion of Tonkin High­way and Welsh­pool Road and three oc­cu­pants of the ve­hi­cle fled. One of the oc­cu­pants, a 27-year-old man from For­rest­field, was taken into cus­tody af­ter he tried to hide in a tree and re­ceived a bite wound from a po­lice dog. A 19-year-old man from Ar­madale was taken into cus­tody in the rear yard of a prop­erty on Welsh­pool Road East, while a 19- year-old man from Port Kennedy was ar­rested a day later on Welsh­pool Road, Kelm­scott.
