Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - Street Watch -

ABOUT 11.45am on Au­gust 10, a woman en­tered the Sport­spower store on Bel­mont Av­enue in Cloverdale. She se­lected two pairs of Adi­das track­suit pants val­ued at $170, then walked di­rectly out of the store, set­ting off the se­cu­rity buzzer. Be­fore staff could stop her, she ran to a gold coloured Ford Fal­con sedan in the car park and left the area. Po­lice have re­leased a CCTV im­age of a woman who they be­lieve can as­sist them with their in­quiries. She is de­scribed as dark-skinned, about 18 to 25 years old, with dark hair, a slim build and was wear­ing dark pants with a black shirt.

He saw nearby a roll of $50 price stick­ers and placed one over the orig­i­nal price tag. He then pro­ceeded to the cash reg­is­ter and at­tempted to buy the shoes for $50.
