DON’T GIVE CRIMINALS AN EASY RIDE
A BURGLARY at a Napier Street commercial premises was in a spate of seven suspected to be linked overnight on July 12. “They were targeting cash tills by breaking in using some sort of prising instrument,” Sergeant Paul Vojkovich said.
About $500 cash, an ipad and a mobile phone were among the haul taken from businesses in Napier and Napoleon streets and Stirling Highway, Cottesloe, Brown and Stirling streets and Stirling Highway, Claremont, Wills Street, Mosman Park, and Stirling Highway, Peppermint Grove.
IT is alleged a Koongamia man (36) had his daughter (8) in the car when it was chased by police from Belmont to St Vincent Road, MOTORBIKES and scooters are cheap, fuel efficient and easy to park. They have become a key target for thieves. To prevent scooter theft, make locks visible because deterrence works. Always use a lock and chain through a front or rear wheel to a frame or fixed object. When in public, leave it in full view of passing public. Engrave the frame or fit microdots, and consider removing the kick-starter during long periods of storage. Record the scooter’s details and identification numbers. – Sergeant Warren Ameduri
