CRACK­DOWN AT BEL­MONT FO­RUM

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - Street Watch -

KENS­ING­TON De­tec­tives ar­rested two peo­ple at a room in a lodge on Great East­ern High­way on Thurs­day, Septem­ber 11, as part of an on­go­ing in­ves­ti­ga­tion into fraud and forged cur­rency re­lated of­fences. The 32-year-old man and woman from Carlisle are due to ap­pear in court on Oc­to­ber 16, charged with Com­mon­wealth Crime Act of­fences of pos­sess­ing coun­ter­feit money, man­u­fac­tur­ing coun­ter­feit money and pos­sess­ing in­stru­ments for man­u­fac­ture. They have also been charged with fraud, drug pos­ses­sion and the BEL­MONT Po­lice re­cently con­ducted an op­er­a­tion in and around Bel­mont Fo­rum to ad­dress is­sues such as shoplift­ing, anti-so­cial be­hav­iour and steal­ing from mo­tor ve­hi­cles. Uni­formed of­fi­cers and those in plain clothes im­ple­mented a num­ber of sim­ple strate­gies that had a great re­sult. Feed­back from mem­bers of the com­mu­nity was very pos­i­tive and high­lighted the value of the new polic­ing model, as much of the in­for­ma­tion to im­ple­ment the op­er­a­tion came from the pub­lic. – Bel­mont Snr Sgt Peter Arancini pos­ses­sion of un­law­fully ob­tained prop­erty.
