Lancer linked to bur­glary spree

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Street Watch -

A MIT­SUBISHI Lancer was stolen dur­ing one of four bur­glar­ies on Forrest Street, which runs through Cottes­loe and Pep­per­mint Grove, on Fe­bru­ary 1.

Se­nior Sergeant Neil Morton-Smith said the po­ten­tial con­nec­tion be­tween the two bur­glar­ies was be­ing in­ves­ti­gated.

Be­tween 9am and 1pm that day, a latch was forced on the back win­dow of a house at Forrest Street, Cottes­loe. The house was ran­sacked and jew­ellery and elec­tri­cal goods of an undis­closed value were taken, be­fore the white Lancer’s keys were used to take the ve­hi­cle.

The un­re­cov­ered Lancer has been con­nected to sev­eral bur­glar­ies in the north­ern sub­urbs in the days af­ter its theft. Sen Sgt Morton- Smith said no sig­nif­i­cant items were taken in the other bur­glar­ies, which oc­curred about the same time.
