‘Tel­stra’ duo looked good

Western Suburbs Weekly - - News -

A COU­PLE pos­ing as Tel­stra work­ers de­scribed as “good look­ing” may have checked a For­rest Street, Pep­per­mint Grove home was empty be­fore a bur­glary about 2pm on Au­gust 4.

“From a de­scrip­tion, we think they came and knocked on the door the day be­fore, when the owner’s adult chil­dren hap­pened to be there and an­swered the door,” Sergeant Dar­ren Gates said.

Sgt Gates said Tel­stra work­ers had been in the street at the time but a day later, a neigh­bour saw a man at the side of the house who said he was a Tel­stra worker.

The neigh­bour called the owner’s adult chil­dren when a woman wear­ing a high-vis­i­bil­ity vest left the rear of the house, say­ing she wanted to use the toi­let, and a sub­se­quent search dis­cov­ered a box of glass beakers was miss­ing.

The Cau­casian woman was de­scribed as in her early 20s, about 160cm, slim, long blonde hair with dark roots, wear­ing a flouro-coloured top with match­ing nail pol­ish. Her male Cau­casian ac­com­plice was in his late 20s, about 180cm, slim but well built, with brown, short hair.
