Busi­nesses tar­geted in bur­glary spree

Joondalup Weekender - - Opinion -

JOON­DALUP De­tec­tives are in­ves­ti­gat­ing a se­ries of bur­glar­ies in Wangara and Landsdale on Sun­day.

WA Po­lice spokes­woman Ros Weather­all said two peo­ple gained en­try to a ware­house on Op­por­tu­nity Street in Wangara about 12.50pm on Oc­to­ber 1 and stole a Toy­ota Hilux parked in­side.

“They have then at­tached a trailer car­ry­ing a quad bike to the Hilux, and driven out of the prop­erty through the se­cu­rity fence,” she said. “Due to is­sues with the trailer’s brakes, the two then stopped and de­tached the trailer and bike in the mid­dle of Com­pe­ti­tion Way be­fore driv­ing on.

“A short time later, the pair then used the car to force en­try into a group of busi­nesses on Fal­lon Road in Landsdale, in­clud­ing a plumb­ing com­pany where they stole an­other Toy­ota Hilux. “A num­ber of busi­nesses were tar­geted al­to­gether, with the two gain­ing en­try via the roller doors or se­cu­rity fences.”

The white ve­hi­cle, reg­is­tered 1DVW 542, was still miss­ing yes­ter­day and has the green words On Tap Plumb­ing and Gas on the side.
