COUN­TER­FEIT $50 notes are be­ing dis­trib­uted across the met­ro­pol­i­tan area again. The notes' clear win­dows are the hard­est to coun­ter­feit, and we have found on the lat­est fakes that the pan­els rub off. The coun­ter­feit­ers have been tar­get­ing Perth night­clubs, but also shops and busi­nesses as far away as El­len­brook. They will strike when you are most busy and not pay­ing at­ten­tion to the qual­ity of the cash you are be­ing given. Check all large bills that come your way and go to www.ban­knotes.rba.gov.au. It could save your money. – Sergeant War­ren Ame­duri

RED­CLIFFE KENS­ING­TON de­tec­tives are in­ves­ti­gat­ing a se­ries of bur­glar­ies in the South East Met­ro­pol­i­tan District, including one in Ra­son Place in Red­cliffe. Po­lice have re­leased a com­pos­ite im­age of a man (pic­tured right) they be­lieve can as­sist them with their in­ves­ti­ga­tion. He is de­scribed as dark-skinned, with black tight curly hair with a stripe shaved into the front, 25 to 35 years of age, of a stocky, solid build and ap­prox­i­mately 190cm tall. He was wear­ing all black cloth­ing dur­ing the of­fences.

RIVER­VALE PO­LICE have iden­ti­fied and charged a sec­ond man over the armed rob­bery of a taxi driver in River­vale. Two men en­tered the taxi at 11.55pm on Kooy­ong Road on Mon­day, May 1, and di­rected the driver to Nan­nine Place. When the taxi stopped, the driver was threat­ened with a knife and his be­long­ings were stolen. The first man was ar­rested a short time later, and a 47year-old man from Koon­doola was ar­rested in the Perth CBD on Fri­day, May 26. The 47-year-old ap­peared in the Perth Mag­is­trates Court last week charged with armed rob­bery.
