THIEVES AT GYM NOT AFTER A WORKOUT
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.
