CAN­NING­TON

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - STREET WATCH -

CAN­NING­TON po­lice are call­ing for help to iden­tify some sus­pected stolen prop­erty that was seized from a per­son of in­ter­est on Wy­ong Road in Bent­ley. The prop­erty is shown in at­tached photo and con­sists of: gold coloured draw­string bag; sil­ver coloured ban­gle with clear stones inset; gold coloured Bud­dha stat­uette; sil­ver bracelet with clear stones and large green stone; sil­ver coloured cross with six "S" in­sets; gold coloured bracelet with gold coloured tri­an­gle inset with clear stones; and watch "BNH Quartz 1005" with fab­ric band. Any­one who can iden­tify this prop­erty or who has any in­for­ma­tion, call 9451 0000.

STU­DENTS us­ing rub­ber bands to flick “stuff” at their class­mates were given a stern talk­ing to by po­lice and were close to be­ing ar­rested for pos­sess­ing weapons of “maths” dis­rup­tion. Can­ning­ton po­lice re­ceived a call to sort out the in­ci­dent at an undis­closed lo­ca­tion last week. A po­lice spokesman said: “the kids were us­ing rub­ber band 'gings' in the class room to shoot stuff at other kids”. “We con­fis­cated the gings and gave the kids a stern talk­ing to,” he said. “We went close to ar­rest­ing them for pos­sess­ing weapons of maths dis­rup­tion. “It's mi­nor but when you call we come, so off we went.”

THE po­lice ca­nine sec­tion is gear­ing up for its first puppy train­ing pro­gram for the de­vel­op­ment of gen­eral du­ties po­lice dogs since 2009. So far there are four pup­pies in the pro­gram. Arnold, Scud and Stinger are 13week-old ger­man shep­herds and the fourth, Payne, is a 21-weekold mali­nois. The pup­pies will live with their han­dlers who will so­cialise them prior to for­mal train­ing which will start shortly. It will take about 18 months be­fore the dogs will be fully op­er­a­tional. Pup­pies that do not make the grade are re-homed through a very in­ten­sive owner se­lec­tion pro­gram. The cur­rent group come from par­ents that have ex­celled in polic­ing and ser­vice dogs, so the odds are stacked in their favour.
