Court appearance for man caught red-handed

At 4am on January 10, a resident of Tunis Terrace, Canning Vale, became aware of an intruder in the home and called police.

Canning Vale officer-in-charge Simon Underwood said officers responded and found a 41-year old man still in the house, in possession of allegedly stolen property.

Four days later, they executed a search warrant at his address in the same suburb, allegedly finding about 250g of cannabis, a hydroponic setup with cannabis plants and other items suspected to have been stolen.

The 41-year-old is due to appear in Armadale Magistrates Court today and again on February 14. A 38-year-old woman from the same address was charged with possessing cannabis, cultivating cannabis, stealing and unrelated traffic matters.
