Harvey-Waroona Reporter - - REPORTER/NEWS - Jac­inta Can­ta­tore

HAR­VEY po­lice are seek­ing in­for­ma­tion from the pub­lic fol­low­ing the theft of chain­saws ear­lier this month.

Of­fend­ers broke into RG Up­ton and Co. on October 7 by dam­ag­ing the lock on the front door.

Once in­side, the of­fend­ers stole 15 chain­saws and one hedge trim­mer.

“We are still in­ves­ti­gat­ing this mat­ter and we are wait­ing on re­sults of foren­sic ex­am­i­na­tions,” Sen. Sgt Lau­rie Mor­ley said.

“Any­one with in­for­ma­tion on this bur­glary can con­tact Crime Stop­pers on 1800 333 000.”

Sgt Mor­ley also of­fered a warn­ing to peo­ple to se­cure their be­long­ings af­ter a hand­bag was stolen from an un­locked ve­hi­cle on Buckby Road.

“I would like to en­cour­age peo­ple to lock their ve­hi­cles when not in at­ten­dance in or­der to pre­vent th­ese sorts of crimes of op­por­tu­nity,” he said.

Ear­lier this month po­lice con­ducted a traf­fic stop on a ve­hi­cle driv­ing along For­rest High­way near Myalup.

As a re­sult of the stop, of­fi­cers searched the ve­hi­cle and al­legedly found a quan­tity of metham­phetamine and cash.

A 46-year-old South Perth man is ex­pected to be charged in re­la­tion to this mat­ter.

On the same day, Har­vey po­lice were called to a dis­tur­bance at a house on Knowles Street.

The re­port in­di­cated there was a per­son in­side the house caus­ing dam­age.

When of­fi­cers ar­rived at the scene, a wo­man al­legedly tried to run away from po­lice.

She was lo­cated in a bed­room of the house, al­legedly con­cealed un­der a bed.

A strug­gle en­sued when the the wo­man failed to come out from un­der the bed.

Of­fi­cers re­strained the wo­man in hand­cuffs and she was taken to Bun­bury Po­lice Sta­tion.

A 21-year-old Har­vey wo­man has been charged with crim­i­nal dam­age and ob­struct­ing po­lice and will ap­pear in Har­vey Mag­is­trates Court.
