Ex­pen­sive drink and drive theft

Western Suburbs Weekly - - News -

WINE worth $29,900 was in the boot of a lux­ury Jaguar that was stolen from a lawyer’s of­fices overnight on June 25 in John­ston Street, Pep­per­mint Grove.

The wine in­cluded boxes of Pen­fold’s Grange and Moet et Chan­don cham­pagne.

“Some of the wine was re­cov­ered in the car, so it would sug­gest the per­son who took it had no idea of its true value,” Se­nior Sergeant Tony Booker said.

Ear­lier that night, the thief broke into an Audi Q7 4WD parked in nearby Palmer­ston Street, Mos­man Park.

Sgt Booker said a bag in the Audi con­tained a wal­let and keys that iden­ti­fied the lawyer’s of­fices.

The thief went to the of­fices and used the keys to take the $100,000, 2010-model blue Jaguar.

The car was found in the carpark near flats on Welling­ton Street in Mos­man Park about 10.40am the next day.

Sgt Booker said a man was seen get­ting out of the Jaguar and en­ter­ing the flats.

He was de­scribed as dark-skinned, about 1.78m, with shoul­der­length curly hair, and wear­ing black pants and a black jacket.

The Jaguar was taken for a foren­sic ex­am­i­na­tion.
