NEW LAWS TO MAKE ROADS SAFER
ATTENDING roadside incidents can be risky business – that’s why our roads have now been made safer for workers attending emergencies. As of March 2, the new law requires motorists to reduce speed to a maximum of 40km/h when passing incident response vehicles with flashing lights and, where possible and safe to do so, move to the next lane. NEDLANDS JEWELLERY worth $33,000 was taken in a burglary at a Florence Road home between 9.30am and 1pm on April 6.
“Once inside, they stole a safe which had been bolted to the bottom of a dressing room,” Senior Constable Jason Griffiths said.
A flyscreen was cut on a window at the side of the house before the thieves searched the home. An investigation into the burglary is now likely to be conducted by detectives.
THIEVES took $8700 of jewellery as a woman was gardening in the front of her Crosby Street home on April 6.
“They gained entry by jumping a side fence and entering through a rear, family room door,” Const. Griffiths said. In addition to the jewellery, which comprised rings and earrings, the thieves took two ipads and an iphone.
Const. Griffiths said one of the ipads was recovered in a park in Warwick on April 9.
CAR thieves took an Alfa Romeo when they raided a Simper Street home between 11pm on April 8 and 6pm the following day. Const. Griffiths said the thieves found a set of car keys to the red 2011 car.
An Apple computer was also taken
The car had not been recovered late last week.
MOSMAN PARK THIEVES vandalised a home under renovation when they stole from a Somerset Crescent property overnight on April 6. “The offenders used carpet powder to spell out ‘2018’,” Const. Griffiths said.
A bedroom window was forced open before two mobile telephones, an ipad, a watch, a handbag, a wallet and $720 were taken.
A RETURNING homeowner found the door from the garage to the inside of the house was open when a Nailsworth Street property was burgled between 8am and 3pm on April 10.
“The thieves had gone to the wine cellar and shifted boxes of wine to the nearby bedroom and left them on the bed.” Const. Griffiths said.
The thieves also took a $2000 television.
