Thieves pull the rugs out

Western Suburbs Weekly - - News -

PO­LICE sus­pect a stolen fold­ing wheel­chair was used to carry Per­sian rugs to a stolen Volvo when a $170,000 haul was taken from a Lupin Hill Grove, Ned­lands, home on Septem­ber 18.

The thieves en­tered the prop­erty through a garage at the back of the home be­tween 10.30am and 3pm.

“They got in through the in­ter­nal door be­tween the garage and the house,” Sgt Gen­eff said.

The thieves took six rugs, one of which was de­scribed as de­pict­ing a hunt­ing scene, another coloured green, cream and gold, and a third that had a mostly brown, flo­ral mo­tif.

Stolen jew­ellery was es­ti­mated to be worth about $70,000.

All the stolen prop­erty was loaded into a sil­ver, 2012-model Volvo XC60 that had not been re­cov­ered late last week.

Perth de­tec­tives are in­ves­ti­gat­ing the crime.
