Fremantle Gazette - - CRIME WATCH -

FRE­MAN­TLE de­tec­tives have charged a man in re­la­tion to an in­ci­dent on Win­ter­fold Road, Hamil­ton Hill. It was re­ported to po­lice that about 3.30pm the driver of a white Ford Fal­con sedan waved an item that ap­peared to be a firearm as he passed a mo­tor­cy­clist on Win­ter­fold Road. On Tues­day last week, a man at­tended Fre­man­tle po­lice sta­tion ad­vis­ing he wished to speak to Fre­man­tle De­tec­tives about a re­cent in­ci­dent. A 22-year-old man from Cool­bellup has been charged with be­ing armed or pre­tend­ing to be armed in a way that may cause fear. The man is due to ap­pear at Fre­man­tle Mag­is­trates Court. TRAF­FIC En­force­ment Group of­fi­cers are in­ves­ti­gat­ing a se­ri­ous crash in Ham­mond Park on Mon­day, July 30, which left a man with se­ri­ous in­juries. About 8.15pm, a 39-year-old man was driv­ing an or­ange­and-black 2016 model Honda mo­tor­cy­cle south along the Kwinana Free­way. About 2km south of Rus­sell Road, the mo­tor­cy­cle left the road and struck the wire bar­rier. The male rider from Wel­lard re­ceived se­ri­ous leg in­juries and was con­veyed by am­bu­lance to Royal Perth Hos­pi­tal. Any­one who saw the crash or the Honda mo­tor­cy­cle prior to the crash is urged to call Crime Stop­pers. FRE­MAN­TLE po­lice said there had been an in­crease in re­ported thefts from cars in the sub­urb and ad­ja­cent White Gum Val­ley last week. Se­nior Sergeant Brad War­bur­ton said there were at least 12. Sev­eral of the cars were un­locked, while oth­ers had win­dows smashed to get small items in­clud­ing sun­glasses and coins. Sgt War­bur­ton said com­bat­ing the thefts would be part of Op­er­a­tion Sir­ius, which tack­les steal­ing.
