Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - STREET WATCH -

AS­COT PO­LICE have charged a 36year-old man from Sawyers Val­ley with a se­ries of traf­fic of­fences af­ter in­ci­dents in As­cot and Perth last week. Of­fi­cers were trav­el­ling along Great Eastern High­way in As­cot about 9.50am when their au­to­matic num­ber plate recog­ni­tion cam­eras alerted them to a black Holden Com­modore ute with stolen num­ber plates. The of­fi­cers tried to stop the ute, but the driver al­legedly failed to stop and po­lice aborted their at­tempt. But the ve­hi­cle was mon­i­tored by po­lice in an un­marked ve­hi­cle as it dropped to within the speed limit and trav­elled to Perth. Af­ter leav­ing the ute in a Welling­ton Street car park, the driver was ap­pre­hended fol­low­ing a short foot chase. He has been charged with fail­ing to stop, reck­less driv­ing, hav­ing no au­thor­ity to drive, steal­ing (the num­ber plates) and driv­ing an un­li­censed ve­hi­cle. He is due to ap­pear in Perth Mag­is­trates Court on Tues­day May 31.
