A PI­LOT’S iden­ti­fi­ca­tion was among property taken in a spate of break-ins at three cars parked separately on Charles, Richard­son and Carr streets early on Septem­ber 28. “On Charles Street, they smashed the front side win­dow and took head­phones, a flight bag and the pi­lot’s li­cence and ID,” Se­nior Sergeant Craig Davis said. On Richard­son Street, rings and a back­pack and cloth­ing worth $1000 were taken, and bags, shop­ping, cloth­ing and coins were taken from the car on Carr Street. Sgt Davis said a dark­skinned man wear­ing gloves and dark-skinned woman car­ry­ing bags were seen us­ing an al­ley­way nearby, but it was not clear if they were linked to the thefts.


THIEVES stole from two cars in Murray Street on Septem­ber 25. Sgt Davis said por­ta­ble speak­ers and a purse were taken from a hire car about 6pm. About 4pm, an overnight bag, head­phones and clothes were taken from a car at a Wil­son carpark on the street.


RINGS, phone chargers and a GPS de­vice were taken from a car parked on Brewer Street about 8pm on Septem­ber 25. Sgt Davis said the valu­ables were worth about $2000. An at­tempt was also made to break into a car on Brook­man Street about the same time.


RE­GIONAL Op­er­a­tions Group of­fi­cers have charged an 18-yearold Ap­ple­cross man with sev­eral of­fences af­ter they ap­pre­hended him at an East Perth ser­vice sta­tion Thurs­day night. It will be al­leged about 11.20pm on Septem­ber 28, po­lice stopped the man as he got out of his ve­hi­cle at the East Pa­rade ser­vice sta­tion. An of­fi­cer approached the man’s ve­hi­cle and saw a ri­fle and si­lencer in­side. The man was ar­rested af­ter a short strug­gle. A fur­ther search of the ve­hi­cle lo­cated a pis­tol, am­mu­ni­tion, a quan­tity of cannabis and methy­lam­phetamine, knives, elec­tronic scales and a bal­a­clava. The man has been charged with var­i­ous of­fences, in­clud­ing pos­sess­ing firearm, two counts of pos­ses­sion with in­tent to sell or sup­ply and pos­sess­ing stolen property.

You can help po­lice tackle car break-ins by pre­serv­ing any ev­i­dence, blood or tools left be­hind by the thief for foren­sic ex­am­i­na­tion. If you see there’s blood on your car’s smashed win­dow or a screw­driver nearby, we will call foren­sic of­fi­cers to as­sess your ve­hi­cle in some cases. The same goes for homes that have been bro­ken into. If it has, please don’t touch any­thing or get re­pairs done. We’ll in­spect the house and the dam­age for foren­sic ev­i­dence. If you have CCTV, down­load it and bring it to the sta­tion. You can also ask your neigh­bours to see if their cam­eras have any footage of the crime. This can be very valu­able for in­ves­ti­ga­tors. – Se­nior Sergeant Julie Fo­ley
