Pilbara News - - News - Alicia Per­era

West Pil­bara po­lice have re­ported over­whelm­ingly good be­hav­iour across the dis­trict over the WA Day long week­end.

Po­lice sug­gested that while the wild weather may have put a damp­ener on a lot of ac­tiv­i­ties, it had also helped keep crime rates down as peo­ple shel­tered in­doors.

The first Nor-West Jockey Club race meet in Roe­bourne on Satur­day went smoothly and po­lice who at­tended said they were grate­ful for pa­trons’ good be­hav­iour.

There were a hand­ful of traf­fic in­ci­dents in Roe­bourne and Ex­mouth, a pub fight in Tom Price and sev­eral at­tempted bur­glar­ies in Onslow.

Po­lice in the town ar­rested three men over at­tempted bur­glar­ies of a shop and sports club. They have been granted bail.

A po­lice spokesman said Onslow ex­pe­ri­enced few bur­glar­ies or at­tempted bur­glar­ies, the pre­vi­ous one be­ing about 12 months ago.
