THEFT VAN TORCHED

Western Suburbs Weekly - - News -

A VAN stolen from Can­ning Vale trans­ported three thieves to the rob­bery of Mos­man Park IGA su­per­mar­ket be­fore the ve­hi­cle was set alight nearby. “They smashed the su­per­mar­ket’s front door and got cash and floats, and those sorts of things,” Sergeant Carol Ver­non said. The Fast Track de­liv­ery van was taken from Coles Ex­press ser­vice sta­tion in Can­ning Vale af­ter 11am on July 3 be­fore the su­per­mar­ket was raided sev­eral hours later. The van was set alight and de­stroyed de­spite fire­fight­ers’ at­tempts be­fore dawn on a va­cant block at the cor­ner of Palmer­ston and McCabe streets, Mos­man Park, about 500m from the su­per­mar­ket. A bur­glar was de­scribed as slim, with dark trousers and a jumper, with a white cloth over his head. His ac­com­plices were both slim, and while one wore dark Nike trousers with a white ban­danna across his face, the other wore grey pants, a grey hooded jacket, black cap and black run­ning shoes.
