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.
