A Waikiki man has been given a prison sentence after pleading guilty to “serious” offences, including a three-day crime spree across shopping centres in Perth’s south. Reginald Jack Coomer, 18, appeared via video link before Rockingham Magistrates Court on Friday, pleading guilty to one count of destroying monitoring equipment, four counts aggravated burglary with intent, three counts aggravated burglary and commit, one count aggravated burglary with intent and four counts stealing. Prosecutor Sen. Const. Jessica Anderson told the court that about 10pm on August 6, 2022 while in the company of two other co-accused, Coomer was involved in a burglary at Lakelands Shopping Centre. Sen. Const. Anderson said Coomer and his co-accused had gained access to Sarba’s restaurant in Lakelands, where they took a till and cash from inside the restaurant before fleeing the scene. No alarm had been triggered at the time of the offence and the estimated value of cash stolen is still to be determined. The next day, about 11.50am on August 7, 2022, while in the company of two other co-accused, Coomer was at the Tool Kit Depot in Rockingham. The court was told Coomer was seen selecting various tools and items including a drill and two-piece power kit before leaving the store and making no attempts to pay for the items. On the same day about 1.30am, Coomer and his co-accused then attended the Secret Harbour Shopping Centre and attempted to force entry but were unsuccessful. They were captured on CCTV leaving the scene in a silver Holden Cruze. On August 9, 2022, about 3.30am, Coomer and the co-accused forced entry into the Stockland Baldivis Shopping Centre, gaining entry via the Jamaica Blue cafe. After forcing entry into the centre, the group made their way to the Prouds jewellery store and were able to force entry into one of the display cabinets, before fleeing with a single ruby pendant valued at $74.50. Several bags were also stolen from the Strandbags store to the value of $1700. The vehicle was located at Coomer’s home address later in the day and he was arrested before making full admissions to the offences. On October 27, 2022, Coomer was released on bail. One of the terms of his release was that he would comply with home detention and was required to wear an ankle monitoring device. On November 14, Coomer was located by police in Waikiki after destroying his ankle monitoring device and taken back into custody. Duty counsel Kim Farmer said Coomer had made “full admissions” to the stealing offences from the “get-go”. Ms Farmer said that at the time of the offending, Mr Coomer had been on a “drug binge”. “He had been using meth prior to going on the spree and had very little regard for his future,” she said. Ms Farmer said Coomer had a very difficult upbringing, spending most of his life living with other family members. “He didn’t have the opportunity to grow up with mum and dad,” Ms Farmer said. “Given the seriousness of the charges, given his age and the four months spent in custody, I would ask that a conditional suspended term of imprisonment be considered.” Magistrate Thomas Hall said the charges were “serious”. “People work hard to run their businesses and they have to pay for damages,” Mr Hall said. “The court is here to protect the community and businesses.” Coomer was sentenced to 12 months imprisonment backdated to August 27, 2022 with eligibility of parole.
