A large black dog – Ridgeback Mastiff cross was stolen from the pound last week during a break-in incident.  

“Two offenders possibly a male and female suspect entered the pound, stealing the dog,” Senior Sergeant Heath Soutar said.

“At this stage we are looking for any information in regards to this, which if anyone does have can be passed on to Collie Police Station or Crime Stoppers.” 

Senior Sergeant Heath Soutar said local police have been working with police from Perth and Bunbury to monitor road user behavior. 

The Breath and drug (BAD) bus from Perth, visited Collie this week to test drivers for illegal substances.

“They (BAD) come down from Perth every now and again and not only do random breath tests but they will also be targeting drug use and doing drug swipes on selected vehicles and we have had a couple of positive results from those which are currently being processed,” Senior Sergeant Heath Soutar said.

“We also have officers from Perth traffic enforcement group quite regularly do highway runs down to Collie during the day and evening and last week we had a traffic vehicle up from Bunbury assisting us and doing many random stops throughout the sub district.”
