Southern Gazette (Belmont) - - STREET WATCH -

PO­LICE are ap­peal­ing for help to iden­tify a man they be­lieve may be able to as­sist them with in­ves­ti­ga­tions into a theft of­fence. On Jan­uary 10 about 6pm, a woman left her mo­bile phone on a table in a seat­ing area on Bel­mont Av­enue, Bel­mont. CCTV footage shows a man (right), de­scribed as 40-50 years old, thin, medium build and clean shaven, ap­proach­ing the mo­bile phone on the table, pick­ing it up and walk­ing away. Within a short time of the theft, the ‘find­a­phone’ app was ac­ti­vated and a sig­nal from the phone was picked up in the Mirra­booka area. The man was last seen wear­ing a hi-vis yel­low and blue long sleeve shirt, blue long pants and brown work boots.

PO­LICE have re­leased a CCTV im­age of some people who they be­lieve may be able to as­sist them with an in­ves­ti­ga­tion. The Depart­ment of Fire and Emer­gency Ser­vices were no­ti­fied of a fire at the back of a store at a shop­ping cen­tre on Bel­mont Av­enue in Bel­mont on Fe­bru­ary 2, about 2am. The men shown in the pic­ture (right) were seen in the area around the time of the fire that caused about $25,000 dam­age to the ex­ter­nal as­pect of the store and may be able to as­sist po­lice with their in­quiries.
