PO­LICE un­cov­ered an Aladdin’s Cave of stolen prop­erty af­ter in­ves­ti­gat­ing a ve­hi­cle break in. On Mon­day, Au­gust 15, a 36-year-old woman from Atwell is al­leged to have bro­ken in to a car in Sal­ter Point where she stole a num­ber of items. Act­ing on leads, Mur­doch Po­lice iden­ti­fied and ar­rested her on sus­pi­cion of steal­ing. Po­lice searched her home where they re­cov­ered lap­tops, tablets, mo­bile phones, power tools, hand tools and other elec­tri­cal items. A small quan­tity of drugs was also seized. The woman was charged with mul­ti­ple of­fences. In­ves­ti­gat­ing of­fi­cer Con­sta­ble An­drew Mills said Mur­doch Po­lice were in­tent on dis­rupt­ing crim­i­nal ac­tiv­i­ties across the dis­trict. “It is im­por­tant that vic­tims of crime record their prop­erty de­tails ac­cu­rately as this al­lows us to iden­tify the right­ful own­ers in in­ves­ti­ga­tions such as these,” he said.

RIVER­VALE

PO­LICE are look­ing for a ve­hi­cle that was stolen at a carpark on Rowe Av­enue in River­vale about 12.45am on July 31. The vic­tim parked his ve­hi­cle, a black Range Rover with reg­is­tra­tion COLATERAL, in the carpark and then turned the ve­hi­cle off and got out. As he stepped out a man ap­proached him and punched him in the face be­fore de­mand­ing the keys to the car, which were handed over and the man got in and drove away. Po­lice are ask­ing the pub­lic for in­for­ma­tion as to the where­abouts of the ve­hi­cle. It is de­scribed as a black sta­tion sedan 2008 Land Rover. If you know the iden­tity of this per­son or have any in­for­ma­tion about this of­fence make a re­port on­line at crimestop­per­swa.com.au or call Crime Stop­pers on 1800 333 000, where all calls are strictly con­fi­den­tial, and re­wards are of­fered.
