Weekly crime report: More windows smashed in town

A number of windows were smashed in town throughout the week with Collie Police believing it could be linked to a series of similar crimes which occurred last week. 

On Friday, January 4, a shed was broken into on Ferguson Road, Allanson, where a 250R CRF motorbike valued at $3000 was stolen.

The bike has a lot of customised parts, including fluorescent red handle bar grips and covered in red, white and blue stickers. 

A learner rider crashed her motorbike on Mungalup Road and broke her leg. She was taken to hospital that evening. 

On the same night, a window was smashed at Henderson Hardware. 

A car parked on Prinsep Street, North also had its front passenger seat window smashed in the early hours of Friday morning. A handbag and a hard drive were stolen. 

On Saturday, January 5 during the day, a car parked on Porter Street also had its window smashed. 

Collie Police Senior Sergeant Heath Soutar said they still hadn’t been able to catch the offender smashing windows from last week and believe it could be the same person. 

Also on Saturday, a motorbike accident happened on Gastaldo Road where a rider lost control along in the gravel road. The rider was taken to Royal Perth Hospital. 

Collie Police Senior Sergeant Heath Soutar said there had been quite a high number of unregistered bikes riding along Mungalup Road. 

On the same night, another car parked on Atkinson Street, South had its left rear door damaged and its rear window smashed. 

On Sunday, January 6, a window at the dentist was smashed on Throssell Street. 

On Wednesday night just after midnight, January 8, Collie Shoeland had their window smashed, where rocks had been used. 

Collie Police Senior Sergeant Heath Soutar said CCTV footage showed two juveniles, a male and female throwing rocks to break the window. 

One juvenile is set to face court with others to follow.

He said there had been a number of juveniles out late at night and that it was a reminder to parents in the community to know the whereabouts of their children at night. 

On the same night, Eden Nails also had their window smashed.
