IT was a case of bad tim­ing for two women po­lice ac­cuse of be­ing in pos­ses­sion of drugs when of­fi­cers raided a Hil­larys home on an un­re­lated mat­ter re­cently.

Of­fi­cers were search­ing a Nin­nis Place prop­erty af­ter the April 14 theft of two lap­tops from a Lake­side Joon­dalup hi-fi store, ac­cus­ing a man of break­ing in through the roof.

But they laid more charges than ex­pected when they al­legedly found the women, aged 26 and 52, at the prop­erty with drugs.

In re­la­tion to the bur­glary, po­lice al­lege shop­ping cen­tre footage showed a 26-year-old Hil­larys res­i­dent en­ter­ing the premises be­tween 6.40am and 7.40am on Good Fri­day.

Of­fi­cers fur­ther al­lege he went back to the same store be­tween 11pm and 11.50pm and stole an­other lap­top.

In­ves­ti­ga­tors re­cov­ered one of the com­put­ers from a pawn­bro­ker.

Of­fi­cers charged the man with fraud and mul­ti­ple bur­glary of­fences.

They charged the older woman with pos­ses­sion of drugs with in­tent to sell or sup­ply, pos­ses­sion of cannabis and un­law­ful pos­ses­sion of prop­erty. The other woman was charged with pos­ses­sion of ec­stasy, metham­phetamine and drug para­pher­na­lia.
