MAN­NING li­brary has been bro­ken in to for the sec­ond time in two weeks. Thieves en­tered the li­brary late on Sun­day, June 21 through a win­dow, stole $120 cash, ri­fled through doors and threw fur­ni­ture in the main area of the li­brary in a bid to find valu­ables. Li­brar­ian Crys­tal Larsen said the front door was re­placed af­ter the pre­vi­ous break in, but they were con­sid­er­ing up­grad­ing se­cu­rity. “We are go­ing to have to buy another se­cu­rity cam­era; we have one but we are look­ing at get­ting another one,” she said. “The li­brary was bro­ken in to two weeks ago so we as­sume it is the same peo­ple.” Mr Larsen said the break-in was puz­zling as staff did not keep a lot of cash on the premises. Kens­ing­ton Po­lice are in­ves­ti­gat­ing. Man­ning li­brary mem­bers are asked to re­turn loans to South Perth li­brary un­til fur­ther no­tice. WHY is it when the rain comes, many mo­torists be­have like frus­trated race car driv­ers and break the sim­ple rules of the road? We don't have to be Cap­tain Ob­vi­ous to see the dan­ger and risk they pose to other road users and pedes­tri­ans. Brak­ing dis­tance and speed al­ways needs to be mod­er­ated when driv­ing in the wet. We see far too many rear end col­li­sions, cars rolled and gen­eral non-com­pli­ance when the road gets wet. Check your tyres to en­sure the car is road­wor­thy. Win­ter is the per­fect time to get the car fully ser­viced and tyres re­placed if need be. – Se­nior Sergeant Ash­ley Goy, of­fi­cer-in-charge, Kens­ing­ton Po­lice Fol­low Kens­ing­ton Po­lice on Twit­ter @Kens­ing­tonPol
