Public, tradies en­ter fray in bur­glar chase

Western Suburbs Weekly - - News -

THE public guided po­lice through streets to the ar­rest of the al­leged bur­glar of a North­wood Street, West Leed­erville home about 11.15am on March 12.

“Which was good as peo­ple were out in their gar­dens, and there were even tradies giv­ing di­rec­tions,” Se­nior Sergeant Kate Vi­vian said.

It will be al­leged that a back slid­ing door at the house was smashed, be­fore jew­ellery, a blue scarf, two hand­bags, a black holdall bag and an Olym­pus cam­era were taken from the house.

Snr Sgt Vi­vian said a neigh­bour heard the home’s alarm be­ing ac­ti­vated and saw a man leave the prop­erty, be­fore the public fol­lowed the man along nearby Ruis­lip Street giv­ing di­rec­tions to of­fi­cers.

The di­rec­tions led po­lice to a nearby aged care cen­tre where staff said there was a man in a back court­yard.

A Bal­la­jura man (44) al­legedly had an Olym­pus cam­era in his track­suit pants when he was ar­rested in the court­yard, be­fore he was charged with bur­glary and bailed to reap­pear at Perth Mag­is­trates Court on March 26.
