Steal­ing from cars con­tin­ues through­out the po­lice dis­trict. Peo­ple are still leav­ing their valu­ables on dis­play in ve­hi­cles. Crim­i­nals take this as an in­vi­ta­tion. Do not leave valu­ables in cars. Theft will ruin your day and solv­ing these crimes takes up po­lice time when the in­ci­dents could have eas­ily been pre­vented by the valu­ables’ re­moval from cars. - Sergeant War­ren Ame­duri


IT WAS a busy time for po­lice dur­ing the Easter pe­riod, with sev­eral search war­rants ex­e­cuted in the area. One war­rant in Brixey Court re­sulted in more than 20 grams of il­licit drugs, mostly metham­phetamine, and stolen prop­erty be­ing found. The oc­cu­pants are cur­rently be­fore the courts. There were seven re­ported bur­glar­ies, on Sev­enth Road, Lit­tle John Road, Glad­stone Road, Claunelle Road, Ben­jamin Street, Wil­liam Street and Sev­enth Av­enue. Many of these took place due to un­locked win­dows and doors.


THERE were three re­ported bur­glar­ies in Haynes on Bi­son Lane, Win­dom Road and Rick­ett Street. One res­i­dence was en­tered while the own­ers were on hol­i­day and the other two are cur­rently

un­der con­struc­tion. Re­port sus­pi­cious be­hav­iour to 131 444.


KELM­SCOTT is a con­tin­ued fo­cus for lo­cal po­lice, with six bur­glar­ies re­ported and three busi­nesses tar­geted. Po­lice be­lieve this fo­cus on busi­nesses may be a re­sult of res­i­den­tial prop­er­ties be­ing bet­ter se­cured in the area and the vig­i­lance of res­i­dents. Dur­ing the Easter pe­riod, po­lice conducted an op­er­a­tion in Kelm­scott and Ar­madale shop­ping precincts, which re­sulted in a large drop in of­fences.


ROLEYSTONE had six bur­glar­ies over Easter, with four over the long week­end. Prop­er­ties on Brook­ton High­way, Sol­diers Road, Si­mons Drive, Welch Road, Palm Road and Holden Road were tar­geted. Po­lice be­lieve

the four week­end bur­glar­ies are linked as the re­sult of a num­ber of fac­tors, in­clud­ing de­scrip­tions from neigh­bours and CCTV footage. A motor ve­hi­cle was also lo­cated out­side a hair sa­lon and was iden­ti­fied as be­ing in­volved in a bur­glary in Thorn­lie a few days be­fore.


THERE was a bur­glary re­ported on Poad Street in Seville Grove, which po­lice de­scribe as un­usual due to the means of en­try. The bur­glar re­moved a num­ber of roof tiles to gain ac­cess to the prop­erty. There was also a tres­pass­ing that took place on Hen­der­son Drive but an alert neigh­bour got up to con­front the of­fend­ers, who fled in their ve­hi­cle. While gath­er­ing in­for­ma­tion on of­fend­ers is im­por­tant, it’s vital res­i­dents call po­lice on 131 444 if they see sus­pi­cious ac­tiv­ity.
