THIEVES are tar­get­ing 24-hour fit­ness cen­tres. They can gain ac­cess to the cen­tres us­ing stolen en­try swipe cards or by fol­low­ing peo­ple into the fa­cil­ity. We are cur­rently con­tact­ing lo­cal gyms in the whole North­West Metro polic­ing area to alert staff and cus­tomers. Take as lit­tle as pos­si­ble when you go to the gym and lock up your items. Al­ways be vig­i­lant and aware of your per­sonal items when at the gym, par­tic­u­larly with tap and go PayPass cards. - Se­nior Sergeant Glenn Dowd­ing



PERTH de­tec­tives are in­ves­ti­gat­ing the theft of a safe when thieves cut through the roof at BP Ser­vice Sta­tion, Thomas Street, overnight on Novem­ber 27. “They went through the ceil­ing tiles, cut off the power and dis­abled the CCTV,” Se­nior Sergeant Mur­ray Gen­eff said. An amount of cash was taken from the safe.

VAN­DALS dam­aged two post boxes at Su­bi­aco Post Of­fice, Rokeby Road, overnight on Novem­ber 27. Po­lice said the post boxes had been forced open. How­ever, the boxes’ own­ers had not re­ported what had been taken late last week.



A STOLEN credit card was used to make nine pur­chases to­talling about $400 in Fre­man­tle, soon af­ter a wal­let with the card was taken from a car in Clifton Street about 3.15pm on De­cem­ber 1. Po­lice said three pur­chases were made at Fre­man­tle Coles, two at nearby Tar­get and one at a newsagency. The sus­pect was de­scribed as male, aged about 30, 180cm tall, slim build, wear­ing a white polo shirt, white train­ing shoes, long grey socks, dark or navy blue shorts and a base­ball cap.

A thief took two mo­tor­cy­cles from QEII and Sir Charles Gaird­ner (SCGH) hos­pi­tals be­tween 7am and 4pm on Novem­ber 26. “It’s un­usual to have two taken, which leads us to think there may have been a trailer used,” Snr Sgt Gen­eff said. An or­ange 2013-model KTM mo­tor­cy­cle was taken from the M Block at QEII and a blue 2012-model Yamaha was taken from SCGH. The ma­chines had been re­cov­ered late last week.

A THIEF closed a study’s door when he left a Tyrell Street house about 5.30am on Novem­ber 29. “The res­i­dent heard a noise about then, and found the study door closed, which was un­usual,” Snr Sgt Gen­eff said. The thief smashed a rear win­dow, searched the study and left through the win­dow, but noth­ing was stolen.

PO­LICE say bur­glar­ies at a home on Rock­ton Street and a Loch Street property overnight on Novem­ber 30 are con­nected. “The streets are par­al­lel, and at the Loch Street house the vic­tim saw some­one, and chased them across the yard,” Snr Sgt Gen­eff said. A ladies wal­let was taken from the Loch Street house and a lap­top from Rochton Street.
