Joondalup Weekender - - News - Mark Don­ald­son

A PINK vi­bra­tor was among items al­legedly stolen by a man ac­cused of evad­ing po­lice by lock­ing him­self in a car in Pad­bury last week.

The al­leged of­fender (27) came to po­lice at­ten­tion three days ear­lier when he was the pas­sen­ger in a car that of­fi­cers stopped in Hil­larys on De­cem­ber 30.

Po­lice ar­rested him on drug sus­pi­cions on that oc­ca­sion but he es­caped cus­tody by tak­ing con­trol of the car he’d been trav­el­ling in and driv­ing away.

De­tec­tives tracked the man to the Pad­bury home last Tues­day, January 2.

Po­lice said the man again at­tempted to flee, this time by lock­ing him­self in a car at the front of the prop­erty.

Of­fi­cers de­tained the man af­ter en­ter­ing the ve­hi­cle via a back door.

The man was re­port­edly found to be in pos­ses­sion of a vi­bra­tor stolen from an adult shop in Clark­son.

Po­lice charged him with es­cap­ing cus­tody, ve­hi­cle theft and driv­ing with­out a li­cence.

He was also charged with three thefts, two counts of pos­sess­ing stolen prop­erty and two breaches of bail. He is due to face Joon­dalup Mag­is­trates Court to­day.
