HELP po­lice tackle car break-ins by pre­serv­ing any ev­i­dence, blood or tools for foren­sic ex­am­i­na­tion. If you see there’s blood on your car’s smashed win­dow or a screw­driver nearby, we will call foren­sic of­fi­cers to as­sess your ve­hi­cle in some cases. The same goes for homes which have been bro­ken in to. Please don’t touch any­thing or get re­pairs done. - Se­nior Sergeant Julie Fo­ley


PO­LICE re­ported 12 steal­ing of­fences early last week, with six bur­glar­ies in Bel­mont. Of­fi­cers are urg­ing lo­cals to lock up, be vig­i­lant and re­port sus­pi­cious be­hav­iour. Lo­cal po­lice also con­ducted two suc­cess­ful drug raids in re­cent weeks. A search war­rant was ex­e­cuted in River­vale, re­sult­ing in four peo­ple charged with var­i­ous of­fences, in­clud­ing sell­ing and sup­ply­ing cannabis. Drugs and stolen prop­erty were also re­cov­ered in Bel­mont.


A WOMAN in her 60s was cut by a knife dur­ing an armed rob­bery in St James on Septem­ber 28. The rob­bery oc­curred when the woman was leav­ing a su­per­mar­ket on Chap­man Road. As she walked to her sil­ver Holden Calais parked on Pitt Street, she no­ticed a man near the pay phone on Pitt Street. As she reached her ve­hi­cle the man ap­proached her at the driver’s side door, pro­duced a knife and de­manded the keys. A strug­gle en­sued. The man even­tu­ally took the keys and started the ve­hi­cle. The woman at­tempted to get the man out of her ve­hi­cle but he drove away at speed, knock­ing her to the ground.The man is de­scribed as dark­skinned, about 152cm tall, medium build, brown eyes, in his mid to late 20s with a mous­tache. Po­lice would like to speak to any­one who can iden­tify the man or has in­for­ma­tion about the in­ci­dent.
