DON’T LEAVE DOOR OPEN TO CRIM­I­NALS

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - Street Watch -

Nu­mer­ous re­ports are be­ing made to po­lice about bur­glar­ies on homes where the of­fend­ers have walked through an open or un­locked garage and then en­tered the house from an ad­join­ing door. It's im­por­tant to un­der­stand that many of the of­fend­ers com­mit­ting th­ese crimes are opportunistic by na­ture and if they see a chance to com­mit a crime and get away un­de­tected, they will. There­fore, the im­por­tance of closing and lock­ing not only your garage door/s but also any door that pro­vides ac­cess to your home from the garage can­not be un­der­es­ti­mated. Ad­di­tion­ally, it is vi­tal that all sus­pi­cious be­hav­iour is re­ported to po­lice on 131 444 so the ap­pro­pri­ate ac­tion can be taken.- armed man threat­ened a per­son and stole their ve­hi­cle on June 4. About 2.45am, a 25-year-old man was sit­ting in his ve­hi­cle which was parked in Toorak Road River­vale. An un­known man grabbed him through the open driver’s side win­dow and pulled him from the car. Once out of the ve­hi­cle the vic­tim no­ticed two other men nearby, both hold­ing knives. The three men jumped into the vic­tim’s 2004 white Holden Com­modore, reg­is­tra­tion num­ber 1BWP403, and drove off. The three men are all de­scribed as be­ing in their mid to late 20s with olive skin. One of­fender was about 178cm tall with a medium build, blue eyes and short stub­ble on his face. He was wear­ing a dark coloured jacket and T-shirt, jeans and a white and black hat. The sec­ond of­fender was about 175cm tall with a slim build and was wear­ing a grey zip up jumper and jeans. The third of­fender was about 175cm tall with a medium build and was wear­ing a dark-coloured jacket, T-shirt and jeans. Po­lice would like to speak to any­one who was in the vicin­ity at the time or who saw any sus­pi­cious ac­tiv­ity. Any­one who sees the stolen Com­modore can call po­lice on 131 444 or Crime Stop­pers on 1800 333 000.
