Knives used in home bur­glary

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Street Watch -

A CLARE­MONT man (26) was al­legedly armed with two knives when he bur­gled a Tem­ple­to­nia Cres­cent, City Beach home about 8.55am on Septem­ber 5.

“Po­lice at­tended af­ter a re­port of a bur­glary, where the of­fender was in pos­ses­sion of two knives,” Se­nior Sergeant Tony Booker said.

See­ing po­lice, the bur­glar ran and jumped over sev­eral neigh­bour­ing fences.

Po­lice were ini­tially un­able to get a po­lice dog to chase the bur­glar and had to rely on search­ing neigh­bour­ing back­yards by foot.

When a dog did ar­rive, a man was found hiding out­side another Tem­ple­to­nia Cres­cent house.

“He was sit­ting in a cup­board near the bar­be­cue,” Sgt Booker said.

It will be al­leged the man had the knives and cannabis when he was searched. The man was charged with bur­glary, steal­ing, tres­pass, pos­ses­sion of cannabis and fail­ing to pro­vide de­tails, and more charges may be laid.

He was re­leased on bail with cur­few re­stric­tions, to ap­pear at Perth Mag­is­trates Court at a later date.
