Break-in spate on Sta­tion Street

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Streetwatch -

THIEVES hit at least three shops on Sta­tion Street in Cottesloe dur­ing the week­end of April 30 to May 1.

“We sus­pect they all hap­pened about the same time,” Sergeant Dar­ren Gates said.

Shops in the street were re­peated tar­gets of ram-raid thieves sev­eral years ago.

That spate led to the in­stal­la­tion of CCTV in the area, and footage from the sys­tem is cur­rently be­ing re­viewed to see if it can as­sist po­lice with the in­ves­ti­ga­tion into the re­cent crimes.

Sgt Gates said the front door was forced at Body and Soul Skin Care, but noth­ing was taken about 5.10am on May 1, but a neck­lace worth $300 was taken af­ter a front door was forced at a nearby shop.

The raiders also forced open the door of nearby Nee-How Mas­sage, but noth­ing was taken, overnight on April 30.
