Murdoch detectives used police dogs in their search of the home on May 24 and seized money, allegedly more than $100,000, plus computer equipment and documents.

A 29-year old man has been charged with 49 counts of stealing while a servant. Police allege he took the cash while working in a financial management position with the company, transferring it to bank accounts between 2011 and March 2013.

He is also accused of paying himself more than $17,000 more than his entitlement contracts and will appear in Fremantle Magistrates Court on June 14.

Meanwhile, residents took it upon themselves to restrain a group of boys damaging half-built homes last Thursday until police arrived.

Mundijong Police officer-in-charge Mike Newman, a Parkwood resident, said a group of young teenage boys was walking down Diamantina Boulevard in Byford in the late afternoon after school, taking bits and pieces from building sites, and kicking in door and window frames.

Residents caught four of the young teenagers and managed to hold on to two of them until police arrived and took them to the station.

‘They hadn’t been in trouble before,’ Senior Sergeant Newman said. ‘We issued them with juvenile cautions and their parents came to pick them up.

‘Kids don’t realise that when they kick in a door frame, that might mean the whole wall has to come down.

‘Suffice it to say they were apologetic about their behaviour and their parents were grateful for having this brought to their attention.’
