BEL­MONT Lo­cal Polic­ing Team were con­duct­ing an op­er­a­tion tar­get­ing vol­ume crime in and around Bel­mont CBD re­cently.

Act­ing on in­for­ma­tion, the of­fi­cers lo­cated a per­son of in­ter­est re­gard­ing a stealing of­fence from a Bun­nings store.

He was ar­rested and taken to Bel­mont Po­lice Sta­tion.

His car was also found with a sub­stan­tial amount of stolen power tools, man­ual tools, jew­ellery, fish­ing equip­ment and other items inside.

The man, from Burns Beach, will ap­pear in a court in the next month charged with giv­ing false par­tic­u­lars, three counts of stealing and three counts of pos­sess­ing stolen or un­law­fully ob­tained prop­erty.
