LOOK OUT, DANGER­OUS DRIV­ERS

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - Street Watch -

ON Jan­uary 12, a blue Hyundai Getz pulled up in the car park of the Boat­ing Camp­ing Fish­ing store in Bel­mont. Two women en­tered the store. One se­lected an Arc bat­tery pack val­ued at $599 from the shelves. A man, who was wait­ing in the car, ap­proached the front counter and started talk­ing to the sales as­sis­tant. The sales as­sis­tant heard the beeper ac­ti­vate at the doors and turned to see the woman leav­ing with the Arc pack in her hand. The sales as­sis­tant at­tempted to go af­ter her but the male blocked her way. The woman loaded the Arc pack into the car and they left. They were last seen head­ing to­wards the city on Aber­nethy Road. Po­lice have re­leased a CCTV im­age of a man and two women who they be­lieve can as­sist them with their in­quiries. The man is de­scribed as dark­skinned, 20-30-years-old, 183cm- WA Po­lice will tar­get danger­ous driv­ing this month, with op­er­a­tions at Perth in­ter­sec­tions, and fo­cus­ing on mo­tor­cy­clists. Last year, 37 per cent of all peo­ple killed in crashes on WA roads were vul­ner­a­ble road users, in­clud­ing mo­tor­cy­clists and two pas­sen­gers, pedes­tri­ans, cy­clists and gopher, scooter and trail bike rid­ers. Po­lice will en­force road rules that re­late to be­hav­iours which in­crease the risks faced by vul­ner­a­ble road users. We will fo­cus on driv­ers who place vul­ner­a­ble road users at risk, and also the be­hav­iour of mo­tor­cy­clists, cy­clists and pedes­tri­ans who dis­obey road rules. Po­lice will tar­get drunk and drug-af­fected driv­ers, danger­ous, dis­qual­i­fied and dis­tracted driv­ers. Our mes­sage is that there is never an ex­cuse for poor driver be­hav­iour. 185cm tall, and skinny, with short­shaven hair. He was wear­ing a green or blue T-shirt, pat­terned board shorts and white run­ners. The first woman is de­scribed as dark-skinned, 20-30-years-old, 168cm and skinny, with long, dark, straight hair. She was wear­ing a pur­ple sin­glet and black pants. The sec­ond woman is de­scribed as dark-skinned, 25-35-years-old and with a large build and dark hair. She was wear­ing a blue Adi­das Tshirt with a pink mo­tif and black pants. If you know the iden­tity of th­ese peo­ple or have any in­for­ma­tion about this of­fence make a re­port on­line or call Crime Stop­pers. Please quote ref­er­ence num­ber 7572. ■ BEL­MONT Po­lice im­pounded a Holden Cruze last week. The car will be im­pounded for 28 days. Bel­mont po­lice are re­mind­ing peo­ple not to drive with­out a li­cence.

On Jan­uary 27, a man en­tered the drive-through sec­tion of the Mt Henry Tav­ern bot­tle shop about 9.30pm. Af­ter wan­der­ing around the store, he re­moved a car­ton of Jack Daniels from the self-serve fridges and ran from the store into a wait­ing car. Po­lice be­lieve the man pic­tured can as­sist with in- quiries. He is de­scribed as light-skinned, thin, about 180cm tall and in his 20s with straight brown hair, mous­tache and un­shaven. He was wear­ing a dark hooded jumper with grey sleeves and blue jeans. Call Crime Stop­pers and quote ref­er­ence 7570.
