Pilbara News - - Pilbara News - Ali­cia Per­era

Three peo­ple have been ar­rested over a re­cent se­ries of overnight bur­glar­ies in the Kar­ratha area.

The premises of a lo­cal busi­ness, an out-of-town busi­ness and a school were all al­legedly bro­ken into on Mon­day night, May 9, and the fol­low­ing morn­ing.

Sev­eral items were taken from one of the busi­nesses, but they have since been re­cov­ered.

Kar­ratha po­lice were able to iden­tify three sus­pects us­ing CCTV footage from the tar­geted premises and nearby premises.

They found and charged one per­son, and charged an­other two al­leged of­fend­ers the fol­low­ing day.

The three ac­cused, who are all men aged 18-25, are fac­ing sev­eral bur­glary charges and have been re­leased on bail with cur­few con­di­tions in place.

They are due to next ap­pear in the Kar­ratha Mag­is­trate’s Court in early June.

Kar­ratha po­lice of­fi­cer-in­charge Se­nior Sergeant An­drew Stevens said hav­ing iden­ti­fied and ar­rested the al­leged of­fend­ers so quickly was “an awe­some re­sult” for the force.

The re­sult is part of Pil­bara District Po­lice’s Op­er­a­tion Dou­ble Shot, a WA Po­lice cam­paign to re­duce so-called vol­ume crime of­fences such as bur­glar­ies, thefts and prop­erty dam­age across the State.
