1 COTTES­LOE

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Street Watch -

PO­LICE ap­pre­hended a man about 15 min­utes af­ter he stole two bot­tles of Jim Beam and $120 from Liquor­land Cottes­loe on Stir­ling High­way last Tues­day af­ter­noon. Se­nior Sergeant Tony Booker said two men di­verted the sales as­sis­tant while the 28-year-old Carlisle res­i­dent slipped out the back and stole the al­co­hol and money. “They called to re­port it straight away, so we went out to get a de­scrip­tion, did a whip-around and found him at the train sta­tion,” Snr Sgt Booker said. “It was a very quick re­sult. They went in there think­ing they could get away with it, and ob­vi­ously they didn’t.” PO­LICE have de­scribed a se­ries of five bur­glar­ies in Cottes­loe, Dalkeith and Clare­mont in which thieves smashed sliding glass doors and only stole jew­ellery as “very un­usual”. Snr Sgt Booker said gain­ing en­try by smash­ing a glass door was unique. “They ob­vi­ously have a cut­ter or some­thing to break the glass, or they’re wear­ing gloves as we’re get­ting lim­ited foren­sics,” Snr Sgt Booker said. “If any­one sees any­thing that doesn’t look right, write down the reg­is­tra­tion num­ber and we will send some­one around.” The most re­cent bur­glary occurred in Cottes­loe on De­cem­ber 6.
