The Mur­doch Po­lice sub-dis­trict is ex­pe­ri­enc­ing in­creased lev­els of crime com­pared to the pre­vi­ous fi­nan­cial year. Bur­glary, theft and mo­tor ve­hi­cle theft are all up. Theft from ve­hi­cles is a fo­cus for us; please re­move valu­ables from your car and if pos­si­ble lock them away. Credit cards and mo­bile phones are par­tic­u­larly at­trac­tive to thieves. We will con­tinue to tar­get th­ese crime types and charge of­fend­ers when we can. Please ring Crime Stop­pers if you see any sus­pi­cious ac­tiv­ity. – Se­nior Sergeant Glenn Swan­nell, Mur­doch Po­lice


Fre­man­tle Po­lice want to iden­tify the man (pic­tured above) who they be­lieve can help them with in­ves­ti­ga­tions into a steal­ing of­fence in the Fre­man­tle and Hamil­ton Hill ar­eas on the morn­ing of Oc­to­ber 20. Any­one with in­for­ma­tion is asked to con­tact Crime Stop­pers.


Po­lice have ar­rested and charged a 22-year-old man with bur­glary and steal­ing af­ter he al­legedly en­tered the home of an el­derly Hamil­ton Hill cou­ple on Satur­day, Oc­to­ber 21.

Po­lice say the of­fender watched the el­derly woman go out­side to hang out her laun­dry be­fore en­ter­ing the home, tak­ing two iPhones and a ladies watch from the kitchen bench be­fore he was spot­ted and chased out of the house by the woman’s hus­band.

Po­lice were called, searched the area and ar­rested the sus­pect. The items were re­turned to the cou­ple.


Three men have been charged over an ag­gra­vated bur­glary at a Rock­ing­ham Road home on Fri­day, Oc­to­ber 20.

Fre­man­tle De­tec­tives al­lege the three men were armed with ma­chetes and crow­bars when they forced their way into the home. A 20-year-old male, his girl­friend and his 49-year-old mother were home at the time.

They say the men de­manded cash and prop­erty but one vic­tim phoned for po­lice and the men fled with some stolen items.

Po­lice ex­e­cuted a search war­rant in Bal­catta that night and ar­rested a 43-year-old man, charg­ing him with ag­gra­vated bur­glary and armed rob­bery.

On Oc­to­ber 24, fur­ther search war­rants were ex­e­cuted and a Bal­la­jura man (27) and Balga man (42) were each charged with ag­gra­vated bur­glary and armed rob­bery.
