Ex­pen­sive taste

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Crime Watch - Swanbourne

THIEVES avoided cheap bi­cy­cles to get at some worth $27,000 from the R and D Speed Shop on Stir­ling High­way about 4.30am on November 21.

“The of­fend­ers have climbed over some chil­dren’s bi­cy­cles to get to the ex­pen­sive mod­els,” Senior Sergeant Peter Gil­mour said.

The haul com­prised a $15,000 Yeti moun­tain bike and a $12,000 Spe­cial­ized stump jumper-model bi­cy­cle.

BOYS had three at­tempts at break­ing into a Fern Street home be­tween 11.15am and 11.55am on Mon­day, November 19.

“The front door’s glass panel was smashed, but no ac­cess was gained, be­fore the lock to the gar­den side gate was bro­ken and a rock was thrown through the kitchen win­dow,” Sgt Gil­mour said.

The boys were last seen rid­ing bi­cy­cles to­wards the Clare­mont train sta­tion.

They were de­scribed as aged 12 to 13, with one wear­ing jeans, top and base­ball cap, all black, and the other a white top and white base­ball cap.

“The men at­tempted to en­ter through a bed­room win­dow, but the of­fend­ers were dis­turbed by the own­ers,” Sgt Gil­mour said.

One of the burglars was de­scribed as about 18, dark­skinned, wear­ing a dark jumper, and his ac­com­plice was about 18, fair-skinned, with a black jumper.

A sus­pi­cious red car parked nearby was driven by a dark-skinned woman.
