Police recover stolen goods

MONIQUE DIRKSZSound Telegraph

Efficient detective work saw the Peel Crime Prevention Unit recover electrical goods valued at about $20,000 and charge three people from Parmelia within eight hours of an alleged burglary at Target in Bull Creek last week.

The officer in charge of the unit, Sen. Sgt Simon Parke said the three alleged offenders used a sledgehammer to gain entry to the Bull Creek shopping complex at about 2am on Monday, January 30.

‘‘We will allege that once they have gained entry, they have proceeded through the staff room, headed straight for the electrical department where they have filled up large material sacks with electronic items,’’ he said.

Sen. Sgt Parke said a vehicle used was traced to a Parmelia home. A 40-year-old Parmelia man was arrested at his Disney Way home on Monday.

The man was charged with aggravated burglary and stealing.

Sen.Sgt Parke said a search warrant executed at the home also saw the man charged with possession and cultivation of cannabis.

He appeared at Fremantle Magistrate’s Court last week and was remanded in custody to reappear next month.

A 21-year-old Parmelia woman appeared at the same court charged with aggravated burglary while a 38-year old woman faced aggravated burglary and stealing charges.

The 38-year-old was released on bail, while the 21-year-old remains in custody.
