Weekly crime report: car clocked doing 186km/h

A 19 year-old man from Allanson had his vehicle seized after he was caught driving at 186 kilometres an hour in a 100 speed zone. 

The man was captured by a multinova in Murdoch and later had his car seized by police. He was charged with reckless driving. 

Collie police Senior Sergeant Heath Soutar said police were investigating a separate incident after a quantity of drugs and cash was seized from a Collie property on September 7. 

Senior Sergeant Soutar said a motorbike was sighted and took off from police just before midnight on September 7. 

A short time later the bike was located in the North-East of Collie and the person suspected of riding it was also located.

A search of the area located a substantial quantity of drugs and cash. A male was charged with evading police. Investigations have continued into the case. 

Senior Sergeant Soutar has reminded the public to keep their bikes locked up after several have been stolen over the past week.

“A number of bicycles stolen in town lately - just a reminder for people to keep them locked and secured. If they get the chance they can come and borrow the engraver at the station and engrave a driver’s licence or some form of communication on the bike,” he said. 

The Golden Bowl Restaurant on Forrest Street has been targeted over several weeks with rocks having been thrown at the front window.

Senior Sergeant Soutar said any information that could be supplied to police would be readily accepted.

“We believe youths are targeting it,” he said.

Police have been investigating after a motor vehicle was stolen from Ogden Street on September 10.

“It was a white Holden Commodore Wagon and it has not yet been recovered,” Senior Sergeant Soutar said. 

“It has some distinctive stickers on the back of the car so if anyone sees anything similar, give us a call.” 

Senior Sergeant Soutar said police were investigating a burglary that occurred on Park Street on Tuesday. 

“If anyone saw any suspicious behaviour in Park Street on Tuesday please let us know,” he said. 

Collie police have also been dealing with anti-social behaviour at the skate park.

“We had a damage offence at the Collie Skate Park where a group of youths decided to kick some wooden planks next to the skate ramp and damaged them,” Senior Sergeant Soutar said.

“We have seen a number of youths given juvenile cautions for their behaviour.

“They were identified via CCTV. It’s disappointing because the skate park is there for everyone’s benefit.”
