BUR­GLARS op­er­ated as a pair when they stole from Auto Masters garage, Stir­ling High­way about 5.30am on May 1. Sergeant Dar­ren Gates said one of the men had a head­light and the other wore a bal­a­clava when they forced open a front door, be­fore cash and tools worth $3100 were stolen, in­clud­ing a ma­chine to mea­sure ve­hi­cles’ tim­ing belts. One bur­glar was de­scribed as cau­casian, 182cm, solid build, wear­ing a white ban­dana with his bal­a­clava, red run­ning shoes with white stripes, a grey back­pack, black jacket and black gloves with white fin­gers. The other bur­glar had dark skin, about 182cm, was of a solid build and wore a dark jacket and trousers, black t-shirt, dark gloves and white shoes.

A BUR­SWOOD man (33) was tasered by po­lice af­ter he al­legedly had knives when threat­en­ing pa­trons and dam­ag­ing cars at the Cottesloe Beach Ho­tel, Ma­rine Pa­rade about 3pm on May 2. “Of­fi­cers found him in­side the ho­tel car­ry­ing a surf­board sus­pected to be stolen, he was ag­i­tated, and it will be al­leged he re­fused to come to their ve­hi­cle be­fore he tried to get some­thing from his pocket which was later found to be a multi-tool, and he was tasered,” Sergeant Dar­ren Gates said. The man was taken to hos­pi­tal for a psy­chi­atric as­sess­ment and will be sum­monsed to face charges of crim­i­nal dam­age and ob­struct­ing po­lice in court at a later date.
