Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - STREET WATCH -

A CLOVERDALE fam­ily’s Christ­mas was nearly ru­ined when their presents were stolen on De­cem­ber 13.

A 16-year-old boy from Cloverdale and an 18-year-old man from Bed­fordale were charged by South East­ern Metropoli­tan Po­lice Of­fi­cers for al­legedly break­ing into an Aber­nethy Road home while the oc­cu­pants were sleep­ing.

The two males were dis­turbed by the oc­cu­pants and fled with the presents.

Po­lice lo­cated the pair nearby and ar­rested them a short time later. The presents were re­cov­ered, still wrapped up.

The duo were charged with ag­gra­vated bur­glary and steal­ing.

The Bed­fordale man will ap­pear in Perth Mag­is­trates Court on Jan­uary 13, while the boy from Cloverdale will ap­pear in the Perth Chil­dren’s Court on the same date.
