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

Wem­b­ley, about 10pm on July 9. Sgtl Vo­jkovich said the first po­lice knew there was an­other per­son in the car was when the man got ahead of the po­lice pur­suit for a brief time and dropped off his daugh­ter at a Lake Monger Drive home.

Of­fi­cers stopped the man’s Holden util­ity at St Vin­cent Road, where he was ar­rested. He was charged with fail­ing to stop, two counts each of breach of bail and reck­less driv­ing, and no driver’s li­cence. He was re­manded in cus­tody to reap­pear at Perth Mag­is­trates Court on July 31.

A BUN­BURY man (46) al­legedly had a blood al­co­hol level of 0.118 when he drove his Holden Rodeo into the drive­way of a Chatsworth Terrace home owned by peo­ple he did not know about 7.30pm

ear­lier this month.

“The peo­ple were so alarmed that they went out and (con­fronted) him,” Sgt Vo­jkovich said.

It will be al­leged the man caused mi­nor dam­age to a car­port sup­port when he re­peat­edly re­versed from the drive­way, be­fore he was ar­rested when parked on a nearby verge.

He was charged with driv­ing un­der the in­flu­ence and was sum­monsed to ap­pear at Perth Mag­is­trates Court on July 31.
