Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - STREET WATCH -

Christ­mas has been and gone and it’s 2016 al­ready. I imag­ine many of you have made a New Year's res­o­lu­tion and quite pos­si­bly, more than a few of you may be guilty of break­ing it/them al­ready. This got me think­ing, do bad­dies make New Year's res­o­lu­tions too? I googled the top 10 New Year's res­o­lu­tions and I no­ticed that re­solv­ing to break into more houses didn't quite crack the top 10. How­ever, there were plenty of pos­i­tive af­fir­ma­tions. How about keep­ing our houses se­cure? Fit sen­sor light­ing; en­sure doors are locked; if win­dows are left open in the hot weather make sure they have se­cure mesh screens ; don't leave valu­able prop­erty vis­i­ble in cars, and if you see some­thing sus­pi­cious ring the po­lice. - De­tec­tive Sergeant Gary Th­waites

1 BEL­MONT AR­SON Squad de­tec­tives have charged a 25-year-old woman af­ter a fire in her home on Jan­uary 4. Emer­gency ser­vices were called to the two-storey unit in Daly Street about 10.25pm af­ter a fire was re­ported. The woman re­ceived mi­nor burns and was treated at Fiona Stan­ley Hos­pi­tal. Two dogs in the unit died in the fire. The Bel­mont woman was charged with crim­i­nal dam­age by fire, en­dan­ger­ing life, health or safety of a per­son and un­nec­es­sary harm to an an­i­mal.

2 COMO JUST be­fore mid­night on Oc­to­ber 2, 2015 the Col­lier Park Golf Course on Hay­man Road was bro­ken into. A group of men gained en­try to the course by cut­ting a large hole on the perime­ter fence which al­lowed a ve­hi­cle to drive in. The men then broke into the club house and at­tached a snatch strap from the ve­hi­cle to a safe. The safe was dragged out of the build­ing and across part of the golf course. Due to the weight, the snatch strap snapped and the safe was left in­side the grounds of the golf course and the men left with­out it. Po­lice have re­leased im­ages of one of the men they think can help with en­quiries (above). If you have any in­for­ma­tion make a re­port on­line or call Crime Stop­pers on 1800 333 000 and quote ref­er­ence num­ber 7958.

3 EAST VIC­TO­RIA PARK ABOUT 12.30pm De­cem­ber 7 a small grey car (above right) was seen pulling up out­side a house in East Vic­to­ria Park.

A man was driv­ing and there was a woman in the front pas­sen­ger seat. The man got out of the ve­hi­cle, walked through the front gate of a house and down the side of the house and took a box. He car­ried the box over his shoul­der and walked back to the gate. Two oc­cu­pants in the house saw and chased af­ter the man to the street. The man apol­o­gised, gave the box back and drove away. Po­lice have re­leased a CCTV im­age of a man (right) who can as­sist with en­quiries. The man is de­scribed as light skinned, medium build, 20-25 years of age and wear­ing a black Adidas hoody. The ve­hi­cle is de­scribed as a 1998 grey Holden Vec­tra sta­tion sedan. Call Crime Stop­pers with any in­for­ma­tion.
