1 PEP­PER­MINT GROVE

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Streetwatch -

PO­LICE say a thief is tar­get­ing View Street. “Some­one is specif­i­cally op­er­at­ing in that area, as we have had sev­eral in­ci­dents and bur­glar­ies in that street, so if any­one sees some­thing sus­pi­cious, they must call us im­me­di­ately,” Senior Sergeant Tony Booker said. In the lat­est crime, credit cards were taken from the glove­box of a car on the street be­tween 3pm on June 19 and early the next day. They were used in at least six frauds of about $430 in Mos­man Park and Fre­man­tle the fol­low­ing day. CCTV cap­tured a man de­scribed as Cau­casian, in his early 20s, skinny, wear­ing baggy track­suit trousers, dark cloth­ing, a back­pack and a base­ball cap. A bur­glar stole jew­ellery worth $40,000 from a Herts­ford Close home be­tween 9am and 11.45am on June 22. “There was a first-floor bal­cony, and he climbed up to the un­locked door and searched the house,” Senior Sergeant Tony Booker said. The res­i­dents were not at home when the jew­ellery in­clud­ing watches, gold watches, di­a­monds and neck­laces was taken.
