1 RIVER­VALE ON March 7, of­fend­ers en­tered a house on Kooy­ong Road and stole a mo­tor ve­hi­cle and wal­let. Be­tween 5.30 and 10am that same morn­ing the vic­tim’s credit card was fraud­u­lently used sev­eral times across the Perth metropoli­tan area to pur­chase more than $400 worth of items. Po­lice have re­leased CCTV images of two men who they be­lieve can as­sist them with their in­quiries. The first man is de­scribed as dark skinned and about 20-25 years old. He was 170-175cm tall with a medium build and was wear­ing a black sin­glet, black pants and black Nike shoes. The sec­ond man is de­scribed as dark skinned with a medium build. He was about 170-175cm tall and was wear­ing an Ar­se­nal foot­ball jer­sey, black shorts with a white stripe along the side and dark shoes. If you know the iden­tity of th­ese men or have any in­for­ma­tion about this of­fence, make a re­port on­line or call Crime Stop­pers on 1800 333 000 and quote ref­er­ence num­ber 7655.

2 CLOVERDALE ABOUT 12.45pm on March 12, a woman ac­ci­dently left her debit card be­hind when she left a restau­rant at Bel­mont Fo­rum shop­ping cen­tre. Mo­ments later a woman picked up the card and in 15 min­utes used it to fraud­u­lently pur­chase more than $600 worth of items from sev­eral stores in the shop­ping cen­tre. Po­lice have re­leased a CCTV im­age of a fwoman (right) who they be­lieve can as­sist them with their in­quiries. The woman is de­scribed as dark skinned with a medium to large build. She had frizzy hair and was wear­ing a black T-shirt with ‘83’ on the front. If you know the iden­tity of this per­son or have any in­for­ma­tion about this of­fence make a re­port on­line or call Crime Stop­pers on 1800 333 000 and quote ref­er­ence num­ber 7651 .

3 RED­CLIFFE DO you know who this man is? He was act­ing sus­pi­cious in Red­cliffe re­cently and Bel­mont Po­lice would like to chat to him. Con­tact Bel­mont Po­lice if you know who he is.

4 BURSWOOD DRIV­ERS were warned to take care when driv­ing down Great Eastern High­way on April 19 as some peo­ple were throw­ing rocks from the overpass in Burswood. This has been an on­go­ing prob­lem and po­lice con­tinue to deal with it.

PO­LICE are still re­ceiv­ing com­plaints of valu­ables be­ing stolen from ve­hi­cles when parked on the street or in car parks of shop­ping cen­tres. To as­sist in re­duc­ing this type of crime it is im­per­a­tive that you leave noth­ing of value in your car, in­clud­ing in the boot. Items that prove par­tic­u­larly ap­peal­ing to would-be thieves are lap­tops, wal­lets, hand­bags, mo­bile phones and iPads. Be­fore leav­ing your car make sure noth­ing at all is left in plain sight. If you take that lit­tle bit of ex­tra time to make sure ev­ery­thing is re­moved we can make a real dif­fer­ence. – Bel­mont Po­lice Se­nior Sergeant Peter Arancini
