Calm, ca­sual crook

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Western opinion -

PO­LICE say a bur­glar told res­i­dents to be quiet when he was found in a View Street, Pep­per­mint Grove home about 11.30am on June 11.

“The crook said ‘calm down’ when he was found by the res­i­dents, and was very ca­sual about what he was do­ing,” Se­nior Sergeant Tony Booker said.

He said the bur­glar had pre­pared to take away a pile of items, in­clud­ing cloth­ing, from the bed­room of the res­i­dents’ son, who was away.

“But he only got a pair of black and green Nike train­ers,” Sgt Booker said.

Af­ter he was dis­cov­ered, the bur­glar ca­su­ally walked out of a laun­dry door he had ear­lier used to en­ter the house.

The res­i­dents later found more of their be­long­ings on their drive­way.

The bur­glar was de­scribed as tall, thin and about 1.82m.

He was wear­ing a black base­ball cap, black sweat­shirt and black sweat pants.

Po­lice said he may have been work­ing with an­other man in a small car.
