KEEP THE CALLS TO PO­LICE COM­ING

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - Street Watch -

TWO women en­tered the Liquor­land Store on Bel­gravia Street on Mon­day, De­cem­ber 8. The first was be­lieved to have put two bot­tles of al­co­hol into her hand­bag and ap­proached staff ask­ing about an­other item while the sec­ond took a bot­tle. Po­lice have re­leased th­ese images of women they be­lieve can as­sist with in­quiries. The first is de­scribed as olive­skinned, about 25 years old, 165cm and slim with light brown curly hair. She was wear­ing black shorts and a white tank top. The sec­ond woman is de­scribed as dark-skinned, about 18 years old and solidly built, with dark hair tied in a bun. EN­GAGE­MENT be­tween po­lice and the com­mu­nity has proved to be very ben­e­fi­cial in re­cent times. Nu­mer­ous re­ports made by mem­bers of the public have been put to good use re­sult­ing in the ex­e­cu­tion of var­i­ous search war­rants for items such as il­licit drugs and stolen prop­erty. The in­for­ma­tion pro­vided al­lowed po­lice to act in a timely man­ner and pros­e­cute those in­volved in crim­i­nal ac­tiv­ity. The benefits of com­mu­nity in­volve­ment in help­ing po­lice iden­tify and deal with is­sues in the com­mu­nity can­not be un­der­es­ti­mated, and that is why it's very im­por­tant to re­port any sus­pi­cious be­hav­iour to po­lice, re­gard­less of how in­signif­i­cant you think it may be. She was wear­ing white shorts and a white tank top. Any­one with in­for­ma­tion should call Crime Stop­pers and quote ref­er­ence 7514.

PERTH THOU­SANDS of peo­ple cel­e­brated Australia Day at nu­mer­ous events with­out sig­nif­i­cant in­ci­dent, and crowds were well-be­haved. Across the State, 87 peo­ple were charged with a to­tal of 112 of­fences in­clud­ing a charge of as­sault, two of as­sault­ing a po­lice of­fi­cer, 41 of dis­or­derly be­hav­iour, four of drink driv­ing, and nine of drug-re­lated of­fences. Po­lice is­sued 42 liquor and four traf­fic in­fringe­ments and 153 move-on no­tices. ■ PO­LICE are look­ing for in­for­ma­tion on a car stolen from South Perth. Any­one with in­for­ma­tion about the 2006 blue Bent­ley Con­ti­nen­tal con­vert­ible with reg­is­tra­tion 1EEW 883 (pic­tured above

right) should call 131 444.

CAN­NING­TON Po­lice need public help in re­la­tion to an in­ci­dent at the Cause­way and River­side Drive in­ter­sec­tion head­ing to­wards Perth on Satur­day, De­cem­ber 6, be­tween 8pm and 9pm. A 32-year-old man driv­ing a white Nis­san Pul­sar was in­volved in a road rage in­ci­dent with the 33year-old fe­male driver of a white Toy­ota Corolla hatch­back where the two lanes merge into one. When traf­fic stopped both driv­ers got out of their cars and be­came in­volved in a ver­bal al­ter­ca­tion which turned into a phys­i­cal al­ter­ca­tion. The man re­ceived a bro­ken wrist
