NEW LAWS TO MAKE ROADS SAFER

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Streetwatch -

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.

FLOREAT

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.

COTTES­LOE

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.
